Thanksgiving.....WTF ???
« on: 23-Nov-12, 08:34 AM »
Can somebody explain it to me? I've read the wiki, but I still don't get it.

I mean harvest celebrations, fair enough, but that's September, surely. Christmas or midwinter solstice, okay, that's late December.......but mid-late November?  :o .....and all this "pumpkin-pie" business. I mean, PUMPKINS! What's wrong with apples? Apple pie with cream, or Devonshire custard. Or Bakewell pudding, Spotted-Dick and Eccles cakes.....

But hey! Happy Thanksgiving and if there's a free meal goin', I'm in!

something about when the pilgrim dudes hit the beach

The date of Thanksgiving was probably set by Lincoln to somewhat correlate with the anchoring of the Mayflower at Cape Cod, which occurred on November 21, 1620 (by our modern Gregorian calendar--it was November 11 to the Pilgrims who used the Julian calendar).
