I just realized that we can't post to Frank's announcement above...

Our Canadian friends celebrated Thanksgiving already. For others who may not know what the Thanksgiving holiday is here in North America, it's basically a harvest festival. Historically, since it was instituted by religious folks, there's less emphasis on revelry and more on gratitude. But in modern times it seems to be mostly about family and friends coming together just for the sake of doing so (or so it seems to me).

As Frank pointed, it's been a challenging year! But there's still much to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for my daughters, who are here with me. I'm also thankful for my family and friends, including here at Pianoworld. I'm also thankful to be able to interact with my students, even if only online.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Ret, and All!

I too got to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I was the only one there with a mask on, and my 4 year grandson, Luke, said I looked like a monster with the mask on. But he still gave me a hug, and a smile (priceless:-).

Yes indeed, lots to be thankful for, in spite of all the dreadful things happening around us this year...

I'm so glad that you have the girls with you and hope that you all had a beautiful day.

Rickster - I have newly found respect for you ! Did not expect that you would wear a mask. Bravo ! What a fine example to your grandson.
Love and best wishes to everyone in/on Pianoworld and may a gracious and merciful God preserve us from harm.

Ret: thank you for the good news and the reminder about being thankful we have family and friends, even if we can’t share Thanksgiving together at a big meal.

I will add a bit to the meaning of Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims were very devoted religious people. The original feast included many members of local tribes. These tribe members kept the Pilgrims from starving to death the first year by giving them seeds, planting techniques, showing them what fish were edible in streams, giving them food and showing them how and what to hunt. The Pilgrims held a feast in honor of God’s blessings in helping them survive the voyage and landing where the local people helped them rather than killing them and stealing what few supplies they had. It was a feast of thankfulness to God and their Native American saviors and new neighbors.

I am thankful to God for all the blessings I’ve received and for my family and friends.

Thanks, everyone. I should add thanks for masks and hand sanitizer!

I've always loved Thanksgiving, but I read recently that expressing gratitude actually has a variety of positive health benefits! So I'm thankful for everything! thumb

Thanks, Lady Bird! My turkey soup turned out pretty good! (first time I made it). And I've had several turkey sandwiches too. Sometimes I think I prefer the leftovers. smile
