Thank you, BDF.

There's no reason you can't have a day of gross overeating to give thanks too. Go ahead. Start a new tradition.

Thanks Bolas! I agree with Andy, make it a new tradition! My husband's family in Michigan has a Thanksgiving feast each year on the 4th of July. Make no mistake, we still do the hotdog/hamburger cookout thing for lunch, but we then have a thanksgiving spread for dinner. They say it's to give thanks for all of our relatives travelling safely to visit.

Thank ye, kindly!!!
I agree with the others....It is simply a day to be thankful for family and friends.
And a good excuse to gather and feast...'course, most of us don't any encouragement in that area.

Thanks Bolas! We've had a good day! And everyone is right, setting aside a day to give thanks for what we have is not just for Americans...anybody can do it!
