I hope everyone has a safe and happy day!

Yes, thank you CA3LE for this site. It's so much more than getting tech help and advice. It's also fun and entertaining. And, thanks to Water, it's sometimes sultry and erotic. But I've made many acquaintances here and think of all of you as my friends and thank you all for that!

BTW, Shug, how many birds are you cooking? Will you let your family eat this year...?

The First Thanksgiving"They spent two months at sea to reach a strange new world, and barely survived once they got there."

Voyage On The Mayflower

The 1620 voyage from England to America was more than 3,000 miles and beset by autumn storms.

Daily Life

The Pilgrims arrived in the New World during the winter, making it very difficult for them to find food and build shelter.

Already weakened by their two-month voyage, most of the passengers failed to survive the first few months in their new home.

Fortunately, native people called Wampanoag, or "eastern peoples," already lived in the Massachusetts Bay area. They shared their knowledge of local crops and navigation with the "coat-men," as they called the English, and helped the colonists survive.

(and finally)

The Thanksgiving Feast

The English colonists we call Pilgrims celebrated days of thanksgiving as part of their religion. But these were days of prayer, not days of feasting. Our national holiday really stems from the feast held in the autumn of 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.

So now you have the true story of Thanksgiving.   :grin2:Now is the turkey done yet??

According to wikepedia that is true Roco.  :thumbsup:

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is an annual one-day holiday to give thanks (traditionally to God) for the things one has at the close of the harvest season. In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, and in Canada it is celebrated on the second Monday in October. In the United Kingdom, Thanksgiving is another name for the Harvest festival, held in churches across the country on a relevant Sunday to mark the end of the local harvest, though it is not thought of as a major event (compared to Christmas or Easter) as it is in other parts of the world. This tradition was taken to North America by early settlers, where it became much more important.

And happy belated Harvest festival to you and the rest in the UK just- .

(about Sept. 23) Only found out tonight.  :grin2:

When is Harvest Festival?

Harvest festivals are traditionally held on or near the Sunday of the Harvest Moon. This is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox (about Sept. 23). In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October.

Unlike the USA and Canada, the UK does not have a national holiday for Harvest Festival.

Hi Tommie thanks for the info in post #12

I think your Thanksgiving day , is more in line with our August bank holiday ,

know as "thank goodness they have gone day"  :lol: maybe we can now get a bit of peace and quiet ,  :evil6:

Holidays in UK , we get the lowest amount in the world, :evil2:

My Gov.says any more and we would loose our competitive edge , IMHO that went blunt about 100 years ago when we banned children under 10y being used as chimney sweep brushes, the UK has just fallen out with the European Union , as we refused to give more holidays and put a limit on the total working hours in a week , as (Gov.quote)  I it would reduce or competitive edge  etc ,

300miles and 2 months , how long did it take before the Revenue cutter arrived , ? :evil6:

Happy Thanksgiving day to the Turkeys also ,  :lol:
