nebule's avatar

we don’t celebrate it here in England…but it sounds like a blast to me… maybe I’ll start celebrating it next year properly as it’s a bit late to start thinking about a big shin-dig now… but will give thanks later anyways…as always of course!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL Jellys.

@Judi – Shut down for several days for Oktoberfest? I wish that were true. But it’s an urban myth. Actually, Oktoberfest used as a brand for celebrating is more widespread in the US than in Germany, because Munich is the only place it gets celebrated with this name. I think at least over here it’s a protected trademark and Munich won’t allow anyone else to use the name. So we also got Cranger Kirmes and Cannstatter Wasen and hundreds of other, see list here (Oktoberfest is only slightly larger than the others):

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volksfest#Liste_der_deutschen_Volksfeste

And there isn’t a single holiday related to that. People do not get off from work.

Judi's avatar

@mattbrowne; My husband ordered a Hartzel Propeller directly from Germany a few years ago in September. They told him that he had to get his money in quickly so they could get it shipped before they shut down. I can’t remember ow long they were shutting down for. That’s why I assumed y’all just took the whole month of October off.

May you all have an AWESOME Thanksgiving!

sakura's avatar

Not in the USA but have a great day :)

syz's avatar

I cooked, I cleaned, I ate, and now I sleep. Many happy returns to you all!

markyy's avatar

Today, I’m thankful I’m not a US resident. You’re country is awesome, but I do not envy you right now.

hearkat's avatar

Thanks, Jan!

I am very thankful that my friend who was in crisis allowed me to see her and to take her back to her house in the wee hours this morning. She had us very worried for a few days, but now it looks like she’ll pull through.

I am thankful that after I drove 90 miles back to my house, I had enough money to be able to afford to take my cat to the Emergency Veterinary clinic to see why she was yowling in pain this morning. Vet ER, X-Ray and Medications: $430.00; having a kitty to purr me to sleep: priceless.

I am thankful for my awesome mattress, soft pillow, cozy down comforter, and NatureScape audio program on my iPhone… because I need a nap!

Much lurve and appreciation to all in the Jelly collective, and especially to Bendrewim for making it all possible.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Haleth's avatar

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Now is the time to think of all the things you are thankful for, like the fact that you’re not a turkey.

Dr_C's avatar

Happy Turkey and Native American slaughter day to all my lovely Jellies!!!! I am very thankful for you all and am grateful for the way you all help shape each and every one of my days. Have a great holiday season and I wish you all the luck, love and success that life has to offer.

Brenna_o's avatar

Happy Thanksgiving jellies! Just dont go over board on the food haha. Like i prolly will..

cookieman's avatar

So we’re having twenty people over today.

Got a twenty-eight pound bird from the farm. Two stuffings, Mashed, Green Beans, Onions, Fried Apples, Broccoli, Stuffed Mushrooms, Cheese & Crackers, Fruit & Hummus and a Spiral Ham…and my wife just turned to me and said, “Do you think we made enough?”

Happy Thanksgiving, guys.

I’m a little late to this party because of my family traditions and food baby/coma, but HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!!!!

I’m tentatively celebrating the Broncos potential victory over the Giants, as well as getting pumped for the Tide playing their rival, Auburn, tomorrow.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@TitsMcGhee: The Broncos could win? Yay!!! I lived in Colorado for four years and once Elway left, I had no hope for them.

TitsMcGhee's avatar

@KatawaGrey: 26–6 in our favor!!!!!

jonsblond's avatar

@TitsMcGhee Broncos kicked ass tonight. Good way to end the evening! :)
