Nice that members celebrate all holidays for all countries here.
Thanksgiving reminds me of how "young" the United States is compared to Europe, Asia etc.

Here is a bit about the Thanksgiving holiday for those interested...

Mämmi is generally only eaten at Easter.

Mustamakkara (blood sausage) - literally "black sausage" is generally only eaten in one area of Finland - Tampere and the surrounding region. It is actually quite good with some lingonberry jam.


Finns mostly adhere to a liquid diet on Independence Day!

20 lbs. sitting in the fridge, ready to be boiled and mashed! (Not all for me, though I only get 5). Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!

Maybe to remind each of us to be thankful for what we have....

We IDNers are not living on the streets. We probably know when we will have a meal. Many of us are not carrying a rifle and a pack everywhere. Most of us don't fear snipers daily.

We are blessed.

Also, Thanksgiving is about food, family, and fun. Togetherness. Coming together.

Indeed .. but it's to give thanks to a Christian God .. people of other religions would be unlikely to give thanks to this God hence my wondering as to why everyone should celebrate it.

As for being worried about snipers .. well if you put the uniform on and carry a gun in someone elses country ...

Many people of the world would be glad to pick the scraps from America's dustbins this evening when everyone has finished gorging themselves .. maybe spare a thought for them?

Thanksgiving is NOT a "religious" holiday by any stretch. More just a time to enjoy parades and football,
kick off the Christmas season, and be with family and the tradition is to simply give thanks for the years harvest.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. A time for reflection on those people and things we are thankful for - parents, siblings, spouses, Wikipedia, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Jim Breen, etc.

Have a good one.

And Thanksgiving has no religious connections. Just a holiday where mashed potatoes is eaten and you be thanful for that! Just 7 more hours....
