Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving

From Wikipedia
Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day
 is a holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Because of the longstanding traditions of the holiday, the celebration often extends to the weekend that falls closest to the day it is celebrated. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. Historically, Thanksgiving had roots in religious and cultural tradition. Today, Thanksgiving is primarily celebrated as a secular holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Hi Lee,

Thank you. :)

I would say, you too, but I don't think Austalia celebrates Thanksgiving.

Guess I'll wait to say Happy Australian day. :)

You're right, Janice...we don't have Thanksgiving here.

Have a piece of pumpkin pie for me, anyway! ;)
