North America holds a long tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving that goes back hundreds of years. It was a time to mark the fall harvest and show gratitude.

In Canada, the day is recognized on the second Monday of October whereas in the U.S. it is the last Thursday of November. Apparently, George Washington made November 26th the original Thanksgiving date. But that was changed with Lincoln to the last Thursday of November.

Regardless, Thanksgiving is now celebrated with lots of food, friends, and family gatherings. There's generally plenty of people also enjoying football games and parades.

This special day is also a kick-off to the holiday season...and as you all know, the annual mayhem of Black Friday starts this week.

So may you have a fabulous Thanksgiving with lots of food, family and fun. And may your Black Friday sales be bountiful!

Hi Susan,

I think that by selecting Thursday as Thanksgiving day, they unwittingly set the stage for a long weekend holiday. When I worked in my professional job, we always got Friday off to make this a 4-day weekend holiday.

Now that I am retired, I don't appreciate that significance since I am my own boss now. I don't give myself Friday off. Heck, I will be working in some fashion on Thursday too. Just like Saturdays and Sundays ha! Every day is a work day now.

Being my own boss makes all the difference in the world.

Cheers.

Edwin

Hi Edwin….thank you for taking the time to comment. A long weekend is most appreciated when still working for someone else. But you’re right about when you’re your own boss. Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

Thank you Jeannine! You as well…Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Nice thoughts, Susan. We don't have it here of course. We have Australia Day on the 26th of January, typically celebrated with a beer and a barbie as it's the middle of summer.

That sounds like my kind of day, Phil! And it would be most welcomed in January…at least for us northerners. 😂

So you're a beer and barbie girl then, Susan?

That’s what summers were made for, Phil.

I think we'd get on well lol.

Thank you Susan… may you, your family and friends enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thank you so much, Mike! I’m looking forward to it. May you have a special time with your family as well. 🦃

Thank you!

-Mike

Thank you for the well wishes, Susan! I'm not quite sure how mine is going to go today, but we shall see! I hope you have had an excellent day, and have a pleasant evening!

Jeff🐶😹🐶

You're always welcome, Jeff! I will share a turkey dinner with you virtually. I hope that you have an wonderful day! 🐶😹🐶

Thanks, Susan, and that is very kind of you, my friend!

I have had a relaxing, but productive day, so far!

Jeff🐶😹🐶

Most excellent to hear...I can relate. The sun is shining, the weather is mild and there is much to always do. 👍🐶😹🐶

We are at 57 degrees right now, so that has been very nice, Susan!

Jeff🐶😹🐶

Very nice, Jeff...it just made upper 40s here, but that was good enough and made xmas tree shopping much more enjoyable! Anything over freezing and no snow is a blessing now. 🐶😹🐶

…as will I my friend. Any good games on you’ll be watching?

-Mike

I'm very glad that your temps cooperated with your tree shopping! I will not have a tree again this year! At this rate, I will be at Ron's for Christmas again too! While I would rather be with my family, that is, sadly not possible, but true Friends are the best things that we can have, Susan!

Jeff🐶😹🐶

Love the note Jeff…so very true!

-Mike

Maybe the Cowboys, being as I am originally from Dallas, but, since I will be spending Thanksgiving at my friend Ron's house with his family, I will be happy for the company!

Jeff

That sounds great…have a great Thanksgiving!

-Mike

It is, indeed, Mike!

Jeff

I understand, Jeff. You will have a great Xmas regardless! But you are most right. True friends are treasures indeed with a lot less baggage lol. Thanks for the note. 😊

I certainly will, Mike! I know you will too,my friend!

Jeff

Thanks, Susan! I knew you would understand! True friends are worth more than gold!

Have a pleasant evening!

Jeff🐶😹🐶🦃

Yes sir!

-Mike

Yes, indeed, Mike!

Hi, Susan

Great post!👍

Happy Thanksgiving, and I know you’re going to have as much with you’re family and friends as I will with mine! 🦃

For me, the holiday festivities started yesterday and may well go until Tuesday!

P.S. I’m still like a little kid, so my holiday season begins with Halloween. 😎

Frank 🎸

Hi Frank! Happy Thanksgiving!

I will be doing just that! Let the food and games begin. I too am a kid at heart and can never get enough reasons to have fun.

I agree with your thinking...from Halloween on it's holiday season! Best wishes for a fabulous time to you and yours. 😎🦃

Haha!😎

Thanks, Susan!🦃

May I wish you and your loved ones a fantastically wonderful Thanksgiving full of food, family and fun too Susan! 🦃🦃

Thank you so much, Nick! Much appreciated. Enjoy the rest of your week. 😊🦃

You're most welcome my friend and I will try my best to! 🦃😊
