Cowart's Common Room

I hope no one minds, and I've not trodden upon any tootsies, but I've taken the liberty of starting a post over in the Christmas Forum on Thanksgiving so that our American friends can share their Big Day with us.

Ivy's Avatar CH my idea of Purple Coo is: You are allowed to post anything you like as long as you are not insulting anyone or deliberately hurt someones feelings.
And how could a Thanksgiving thread do such a thing

Fennie's Avatar But I have an even better idea: why don't we have a Thanksgiving dinner and celebration here on Purple Coo. When is it? 26th November?

Frances's Avatar Fennie, you have got the date correct. Our Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday in November.

The holiday is ideally a time to give thanks, yet has evolved into a time to eat lots and lots and lots. Many families will gather together, and have the benefit of a four-day weekend. Some families might have a glorious time together, and others might not. Traditionally churches used to have services on Thanksgiving Day. Not sure how many still do.

I could go on. Maybe that is the reason for the original suggestion for the spot in the forum! xo

Westerwitch's Avatar Lovely idea Fennie - who wants to organise it?

Boudicca23's Avatar Hmm, that turkey looks unaccountably cheery - obviously no idea what's in store.....

Blackbird's Avatar Thank you for thinking of us, CH. Yes, Thanksgiving is a biggy over here- friends or family. And, it marks for us the beginning of the Christmas season- whether it's the stores that light up with decorations the day after, the sales or the realization that you have only weeks to go.
