Default Thanksgiving!


Applicable only to citizens of the U.S of A, at home or abroad. If you're in Canada, we missed you by a while. But Americans are friendly folks, so anyone else who wants to stuff themselves silly with turkey is welcome to join in our joyous day of giving thanks.

Now, in the words of Linus van Pelt (If you've never heard of him you are a humourless toad, and should Google him immediately:

Governor William Bradford and Captain Miles Standish were honored guests. Elder William Brewster, who was a minister, said a prayer that went something like this: 'We thank God for our homes and our food and our safety in a new land. We thank God for the opportunity to create a new world for freedom and justice."

Peppermint Patty: A-men!
If you haven't already, go get yourself a Turkey Tree, some pretzels, jellybeans, toast, popcorn, and a costumed beagle to help you prepare it all.

Wow, it seems like the last one just happened!

Well, in regards to WB updates, that is, since we don't celebrate it here.
