This is my second day off I wish all our US forum members a happy Thanksgiving Day. I look forward to a long, very quiet day. Thank you.

Thanksgiving Day.

What exactly are they giving thanks for?

The first settlers, having survived their first year marooned in their new home, they used some precious food and had a feast and being mostly religious emmigrants they also gave thanks. In the US this is a more important family day than Christmas.

Thanks for that.

"marooned in their new home".

Quite. ;-))

Perhaps we should also remember that it was someone else's old home.
