Thanksgiving
« on: November 25, 2010, 05:24:09 AM »
Hi Americans,

I have few Thanksgiving related questions.

Is Thanksgiving a public holiday?
Is tomorrow a public holiday or do you have to go to work/school for one day?
What's the drill for Thanksgiving day. Do you get together with family and eat loads and watch TV etc...?
Is it a bigger deal to you that Christmas?
Why do the Lions and Cowboys ALWAYS play on Thanksgiving?

there is some evidence for an earlier harvest celebration by Spanish explorers in Florida during 1565..............

Didn't most cultures have a harvest celebration?

Schools, banks, and most nonessential govt jobs are out tomorrow, but lots of other people have to work.

What's the drill for Thanksgiving day. Do you get together with family and eat loads and watch TV etc...?
Is it a bigger deal to you that Christmas?

It's about the same as Christmas, same kinds of foods. A lot of stores are open today, so instead of TV there will be Christmas shopping. 

Why do the Lions and Cowboys ALWAYS play on Thanksgiving?

Tradition, I think.  Something that started in the 1960s and just kept going. 
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.
