"Thanksgiving has no place in British tradition. "So sayeth The Independent.Not so, Independent. In the USA 'Thanksgiving' is celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November and in Canada on the on the 2nd Monday of October. In Britain, where it is known as 'Harvest Festival', it has been celebrated since pagan times on the occurrence of the Harvest Moon (the nearest full moon to the autumn equinox (22 or 23 September).This celebration of the harvest is common to many countries and falls in line with their harvest time.Saxon's, settled in Britain from around AD 43. The Anglo-Saxon farmers would offer the first sheaf of corn to the god of fertility to ensure a good crop the following year. The last sheaf (believed to contain the Spirit of the corn) was cut along with the ritual sacrifice of an animal (usually a hare) and the straw made into an effigy of the animal. This eventually gave rise to the Corn Dolly."Thanksgiving is the latest US tradition to take root in the UK, as one in six of us celebrate 'Brits-giving'Hmmm, Methinks you're about 2000 yrs out and should be looking across the channel to Germany, not the Atlantic to 'The New World'.So to keep in line with this thread's subject....".....more of us are gobbling turkey and pumpkin pie..."I would rather a slice of punkin pie, if you don't mind.

I went to the barber for a herr cat. He was hard tired of hear herring...
It was a clear, cloudless winter's day in London town, yet people in the street were getting wet. The Vicar dashed into the office block and up the stairs onto the roof. There he found one of his parishioners relieving himself over the parapet."What are you doing?" he screamed."I am doing exactly as you said." Replied the man."No, no," said the Vicar, "what I said was peace on all men."
