    a Happy Thanksgiving....

    The past 5 Thanksgiving's, my daughter has had it at her house. Part of the day, was finding a couple of people who had no place to go. One year it was some hospital patients, another two homeless men, another friends who had no family and no place to go.

    She is continuing that tradition, which to me is what makes Thanksgiving so very special.

    I am very thankful... Last Thanksgiving, I was in a shoulder sling recovering from my Shoulder replacement, this year I am in a walker, recovering from a Hip replacement.

    Why am I so lucky? I am surrounded at home, with family , with friends , with workers, with other Spine-Health members that make a difference in my life.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    (Pinot Noir the choice of red wine and either a Gewurztraminer or Riesling for white to go with the Turkey)

  • Canada has already celebrated our Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has a great day in the States. We also have turkey on the American Thanksgiving as well! Can't get enough turkey.

    Thanks for the wine tip Ron. I really like Raspberry Merlot homemade from friends near Niagara Falls. Charry

  • Have a safe and happy holiday weekend to y'all south of the border! I hope each and every one of you find something to be thankful for!

    Ron, I actually used to bottle my own Gewurztraminer, it's one of my faves!

    You guys have Thanksgiving in the beginning of October (or there abouts)

    US - Pilgrims, Indians, most everyone knows about this.

    Canada

    Traces back to 1578 voyage of Martin Frobisher in search of the Northwest Passage. One of his voyages, Frobisher Bay (guess named after him) of Baffin Island, they got bogged down with ice and weather. Looks like other historical events led to different days of Thanksgiving.

    Ah the beauty of Wikipedia!

    But now this is only a layman's view and interpretation of documented facts. Nothing better than hearing it from the source...

    Ahemmmm , Charry, Kelly, Tracy-Lynne, etc

    Please tell us more

    We don't have Thanksgiving in UK, I suppose our equivalent is the Harvest festival, it isn't a national holiday but is celebrated in schools and churches, gifts of food are collected and distributed to people in need.

    I love your daughter's idea Ron, what a wonderful way to show appreciation

    Enjoy your weekend everyone

  • Oct. 10 in Canada and generally means the same as the USA getting together with family and giving thanks for what we have.

    I thought it was really the exchanging of corn and other goods from the land from the Indians and trading with the Pilgrims with their goods. Thought that's what I learned also.

    There was always a prayer of thanks from the head of the table when we celebrated then we all chowed down and I like the big drumstick and then pulling the wishbone after! stuffing, baby carrots, gravy and mashed potatoes and sometimes yams and pumpkin pie for dessert. That's a real Thanksgiving. Charry

  • Yep, we were always taught the Plymouth Rock pilgrim version. The Frobisher Bay (which is now called Iqaluit) version is a new one to me! I always figured our Thanksgiving was a little earlier because our harvest season ended earlier due to it being colder up here? LOL
