I’d like to begin our Friday Filosophy #2015-29 by wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. I grew up in Canada and Thanksgiving is October, close to Columbus Day, and that is also close to my birthday, I love pumpkin pie. So have some cider, or whatever your choice of beverage, enjoy turkey and the complete meal. Most important of all please enjoy your families. Cheers!
Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off’rings, and a thankful strain.
What we’re really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving, after all is a word of action.
Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.
Robert Caspar Lintner
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not a coincidence.
An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day
The time is now.
