    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Ummm...some of us don't even know what it's all about. We know that a lot of turkeys are sacrificed, but that's about it.
    Is it a religious festival or a National pride thing...or something else again...what's it all about?

    Dumb-Ass? Not hardly! Not by a long shot.
    At it's base - our thanksgiving day is celebration of family, of the blessings bestowed by whatever spirit you follow, a day to celebrate the seasons harvest.. a day to rest and gather the family around you and enjoy each others company..

    Not a new idea, not a novel concept... but certainly a great idea! I'd love to have you at my table someday - the story telling would become epic I'm certain!!!

    JB what Mike wrote is a very good sentiment for how we use the Holiday as a family celebration. This event and it's significance results in the busiest travel period for the year in this country.

    Given your passion for history it has significant origins. The first thanks giving was, as legend has it, fashioned by early pioneers who fled hard times and persecution in Europe to seek a reset of life in a new and uncertain world. They were mostly the risk takers who chose to shed those elements and activities that imposed oppression of some sort on their lives rather than remain and whine. A bold lot they.

    Or, if you want to believe the self annointed do-gooders they came here to exploit the "native americans"...……….who weren't really native to the continent either, they were just the risk takers who came earlier. But what's a guilt driven human to do. I suspect down your way there's a similar historical framework...…...just not the turkey slaying rituals.

    Thanks Mike and uncle Bob. We have nothing like it in God's own; but I can understand the thinking behind it.

    My lot were of peasant stock; it was the Irish potato famine of the 1830s and 40s that drove them out.
    Rosie's lot were the same, (but 100 years later,) we went back to see where her father was born and raised.
    The cottage (on the west coast of Scotland,) where Andrew's father was the kennel keeper, was not as flash as the kennels the local Laird's dogs lived in.
    So we too have many reasons to be thankful.

    Seeing first hand where he came from made me understand the man a lot better. His obsession with flashy trinkets and 'intellectual' books, (which he never read,) showed the world that he had 'made it'.
    He was rich and could afford these things was the message he was sending.
