Happy Thanksgiving


obama_turkey_pardon_h_2012-600x350 In between oh! so mistakenly, stabbing that glutton family member with a fork for making a bee line for the only turkey drumstick left or the buzzed uncle making a pass on the wife—sure Felix! Heavens to Murgatroyd of course you thought she  was your High school squeeze, that was in the 50’s? more like 1850’s. AND Please! you know we all have them, I know what you are thinking; not those but close enough. Yes, I’m talking about a Republican family member or friend. As much as I may rant about Obama, every time a Republican opens his or her mouth I lose it. However, it’s the holidays and we’re supposed to be on our best behavior, my wife  has a cattle prod ready for me should I say ” %$^&*! Republican effers, die, die, die! trust me it hardly ever happens–REALLY. I’m still trying to figure out how going out in the cold, half drunk to pretend that  we ( Men) are football players became a thanksgiving tradition. Here is a few examples on how other folks celebrate Thanksgiving:

Canada

Pumpkin pie is commonly served on and around Thanksgiving in North America.

Main article: Thanksgiving (Canada)

Thanksgiving (Frenchl’Action de grâce), occurring on the second Monday in October, is an annual Canadian holiday to give thanks at the close of the harvest season. Although the original act of Parliament references God and the holiday is celebrated in churches, the holiday is mostly celebrated in a secular manner. Thanksgiving is a statutory holiday in all provinces in Canada, except for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. While businesses may remain open in these provinces, the holiday is nonetheless recognized and celebrated regardless of its status.[28][29][30][31][32]

Grenada

In the West Indian island of Grenada, there is a national holiday known as Thanksgiving Day which is celebrated on October 25. Even though it bears the same name, and is celebrated at roughly the same time as the American and Canadian versions of Thanksgiving, this holiday is unrelated to either of those celebrations. Instead the holiday marks the anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of the island in 1983, in response to the deposition and execution of Grenadian Prime Minister Maurice Bishop.[33]

Liberia

In the West African country of Liberia, which began in 1820 with the colonization of freed black slaves (Americo-Liberians) from the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the first Thursday of November.[34]

The Netherlands

Many of the Pilgrims who migrated to the Plymouth Plantation had resided in the city of Leiden from 1609–1620, many of whom had recorded their births, marriages and deaths at the Pieterskerk. To commemorate this, a non-denominational Thanksgiving Day service is held each year on the morning of the American Thanksgiving Day in the Pieterskerk, a Gothic church in Leiden, to commemorate the hospitality the Pilgrims received in Leiden on their way to the New World.[35]

Norfolk Island

In the Australian external territory of Norfolk Island, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the last Wednesday of November, similar to the pre-World War II American observance on the last Thursday of the month. This means the Norfolk Island observance is the day before or six days after the United States’ observance. The holiday was brought to the island by visiting American whaling ships.[36]

United States

Thanksgiving, currently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November by federal legislation in 1941, has been an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States. Historically, Thanksgiving has traditionally been a celebration of the blessings of the (agricultural) year, including the harvest.[37]

Similar holidays

Germany

A food decoration for Erntedankfest, a Christian Thanksgiving harvest festival celebrated in Germany

The Harvest Thanksgiving Festival, Erntedankfest, is an early October, German Christian festival. The festival has a significant religious component to it, but also, like its North American counterpart, includes large harvest dinners (consisting mostly of autumn crops) and parades.[38] The Bavarian beer festival Oktoberfest generally takes place within the vicinity of Erntedankfest.

Japan

Main article: Labor Thanksgiving Day

Labor Thanksgiving Day (勤労感謝の日 Kinrō Kansha no Hi?) is a national holiday in Japan. It takes place annually on November 23. The law establishing the holiday, which was adopted during the American occupation after World War II, cites it as an occasion for commemorating labor and production and giving one another thanks. It has roots in an ancient harvest ceremony (Niiname-sai (新嘗祭?)) celebrating hard work.

Of course we’re Americans so we tend to favor tall tales,Yes we can!, sorry drifted a bit there not hinting of a tall tale promise made to the American people, REALLY, so it is no surprise that we favor the fantastical story that the Pilgrims invited Indians, yes I know but it is how it was taught to my generation, over for an early version of another great American- tradition the BBQ. I wonder if those guys played football? probably not, I mean who would guard the Muskets and Tomahawks? See it was almost like  modern times. The reality is most likely to be that the Pilgrims/puritans continued their old world tradition of  Days of Fasting also referred to as Thanksgiving to celebrate the years harvest. However it came to be, Thanksgiving; is a day for us to  be thankful for the good things in our lives especially family and friends—in that spirit I like to thank you all for your friendship and wish you and yours a bountiful and happy Thanksgiving.

    Ok, looks like you guys had a rockin’ Sat night here at the Realm. Caller started out with some atrocious covers of the Beatles, then morphed into covers of Neil Diamond, and ended with his usual squirrely esoteric Caller playlist. Not to mention all the pictures of fruitcake.

  9. waverly says:

    Good morning all good Realmsters. Just wondering this morning if anyone has seen or heard from either Hobette or Haruko? I don’t think I’ve seen either for days now. Anyone know what happened to them?

    • fi says:

      Haruko is on holiday, she should be back any day now, I think Hobette is caught up in her independent living thingy, I could be wrong about Hobette though.
      Hi Wavy, you and Darla ok?

  10. thedood says:

    Good day all! Wow…in the 60s here to day…but rain coming 😦
    The park is closed through the weekend…the are culling the deer. They are too numerous to be healthy. Makes me sad…I saw three younger deer near my apartment on the way home last night. Clancey and I have seen some at the park that didn’t look the healthiest. *sigh* I suppose it’s necessary, just kinda sad.

    • fi says:

      Hi Dood, very sad when they have to do that to keep the herd healthy, it happens here too.
      Have you been working over TG?

      • thedood says:

        Hi fi! Yes…it’s necessary I suppose. I worked over Thanksgiving…I made a Turkey breast before and Clancey has been helping me eat it! 😉

      The right needs to understand this. The left gets that it’s systemic violence from white culture in decline.

      • classicalgastoo says:

        Indeed – a desperate attempt to maintain control. Small wonder they’re so rabidly against abortion.

      • waverly says:

        Exactly. I posted regarding this article before. And the fact that this is not a new phenomenon. Every time in American history when black people seem to be making progress there is a white backlash against it. The old guard needs to die out. Just like when enough of the old guard died out, the Berlin wall finally came down. Just a matter of time. The old white man’s days are numbered.

    Thought I would post this…this guys got b@lls as big as church bell!

    Here’s the article it came from…http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/outposts/post/daredevil-climbs-tall-tower-walks-across-chasm/

    Anybody heard from Gramma lately? Hope she’s okay.

    • classicalgastoo says:

    • msolomon2 says:

      I agree if only!

    • waverly says:

      The reason I finally joined HP in 2008 after being a long time lurker was because they promised to follow the plight of those adversely affected by the financial crash of 2008. Now looking back, that promise is just laughably obscene.

      • waverly says:

        Like Jack said, did all those people who were living in tent cities in 2009, ever bounce back? I know I never regained my footing after losing my job in 2008. Did anyone follow the plight of the people. We think not. It is America’s dirty little secret. Buried by obscene stories of Black Friday shopper gluttony. All smoke and mirrors to hide the facts.
