Thankful On a Tree Tuesday

P1050152.jpg

Perhaps a slightly tongue in cheek look at an mainly American holiday.

I never understood why other countries have not jumped on the Thanksgiving bandwagon. Sure you may not have the back story of the pilgrims and Native Americans, but I don't think that is necessary. If I were the Supreme Commander (I kind of like that title, has a better ring to it than Oldguy) of some country, I would set a date around the time of the harvest and commence to celebrating!

The cool thing about Thanksgiving is it does not need to be religious. We can and should appreciate the Earth and Sun for doing their thing and making life here possible. Everyday we are all reaping the benefits of a bountiful harvest whether it is in vegetables, fruits, nuts, or meat.

In addition Thanksgiving is a good excuse to go way overboard on the diet. Nothing speaks more about the holiday than the traditional table laden with every type of sinful dish. Go ahead take a second or third helping, no judgment on Thanksgiving.

Oh and we must not forget the sports watching. I am not a sports fanatic but I know many are and Thanksgiving is the time to gather around the old tele and watch the games. Here of course it is football, but I am sure no-one will mind if you all substitute in soccer. We do what we can with what we have of course lol.

Come on regardless where you live, feel free to jump on the Thanksgiving bandwagon. You know you want to!

There are already 17 countries that celebrate their own version of Thanksgiving. Some of the festivities commemorate colonial migrations to the Americas and others celebrate the start of a new lunar cycle to welcome in the harvest season.

Happy Thanksgiving to you Old Guy!

Oh see I did not know that. I appreciate your broader world view. I wonder how long it will last here? They may well do away with it or rename and change the narrative perhaps.

Happy Thanksgiving to you Sunshine!
