Happy Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is America's national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty. ~Michael Dresser
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. ~Aesop
I'm inclined to take Aesop's view.  
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!!

Well, er, yes, thanks, but Thanksgiving Day is alien to my culture, in common with much that emanates from the US, which is probably the biggest threat to world peace there is.  
But I hope everyone had a good time.

As far as holidays go, Thanksgiving is a pretty good one, and the idea of being grateful for what you have is not alien to any culture. What is disgusting is how a day of thanks is immediately followed by a day wholly dedicated to greed and consumerism--"Black Friday." The world would actually be more peaceful is a holiday like Thanksgiving was celebrated around the world. But it would be more disgusting and crass if everyone followed it by going shopping.
