in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving on Collumbus day.
because go back to circa oct 11th 1492 all across NA Native Americans are waking up, thinking, "yes another beautiful day in paradise. then we come to oct 12th 1492.
I mean nothing says thanks to me like the complete wholesale genocide of multiple races\species\and cultures like a wobbly cylindrical can of cranberry. :)

those big giant ballon things are neat though.

Thanksgiving in a nutshell: Day Of Gluttony:D


Every year my grandma in Luisville makes the BEST, and I mean THE BEST ,Thanksgiving dinner I know about. It is Even better than RESTURAUNT quality and it is better for you! It Is TRUE! she knows how to cook, If you had some you'd agree.

i didn't get to go this year becuase I had to work. and for what? $6.20 an hour, without Holiday pay. Life s@cks.

I've been deep frying a turkey for my family for about 4 years now. Best way to eat it in my opinion.

WTF is up with you people? What's wrong with Christmas? Do you just hate all things good and pure? And what did America do to Christmas? We just celebrated it. Will you not be happy till America is in another universe?

And what's wrong with buying things? So corporate companies get money, it makes people happy. Is the happiness irrelevant because a company got money or something?

I couldn't live like you people, hating everything, I don't know how you live like that, wihtout holidays, without happiness.

What's wrong with Christmas? Do you just hate all things good and pure? And what did America do to Christmas?Lolz, good and pure. America helped greatly to commercialize Christmas. I think that's what people don't like, these days.

Will you not be happy till America is in another universe?Another planet would do. :D

I for one like... at least several Americans. I just dislike the American culture of materialism and isolationism. Not the people themselves. Well, not ALL the people.

And what's wrong with buying things? So corporate companies get money, it makes people happy. Is the happiness irrelevant because a company got money or something?Because they should be able to obtain that happiness AT A LOWER COST. The corporations you're defending overcharge massively to support their profit margin, which does NOT go towards paying workers more, but paying BOSSES more.

I couldn't live like you people, hating everything, I don't know how you live like that, wihtout holidays, without happiness.I don't know about the other guys here, but I'm perfectly happy without all the commercial, uber-capitalist saccharine trappings of "holidays". I don't hate everything by any stretch of the imagination, and I'm happier hunting for bargains and creating my own belongings than I would be if I were simply shelling out to feed corporate greed. And I save a wodge of moneys too. Wahoo!

IG-64
11-26-2004, 12:58 PM

Spider AL
11-26-2004, 01:05 PM
Ever heard of a sale?I did SAY I enjoyed bargain hunting, didn't I. ;)

And how do you know if they overcharge?Because I worked in sales for a time, once. Every modern retailer overcharges, because of the network of vampiric middlemen between craftsmen and equally evil corporate retailers that are all taking a bite out the consumer's neck in order to preserve their own greedy little profit margin. I've seen bosses overpay themselves by overcharging their customers, and not a penny has been made by those who worked in the sales department, nor by those who work in the stores. Even, or perhaps especially the craftsmen themselves, the SOURCE of the provender... earned almost as little out of the deals.

Our modern, capitalist culture fosters corruption, greed and lack of personal skill. It is killing off original thought, and encouraging bland consumerism and ill-education among the masses.

SIMPLY THROUGH ITS NATURE.

Have you ever been to America?Please, don't remind me.

It seemed liek when I went to London for a week, everything was more expensive there.London's a tourist trap, so things are a little pricey there, pricier than elsewhere in the UK. But America has its own extravagant areas. As for America being somehow less of a ripoff than the UK... the US is famous for corruption in both business and retail, and for underpaid workers now, isn't it. So are we.

Hooray for us.

Yep, the UK is just bout the most expensive place to get anything.That's not true. I've been to some BLOODY expensive places. Made London seem like a paradise.

Of course, that was just a trick to find out if you really are a student. Hotdogs are brilliant at about that time.

talking of post pub cooking, last year a girl in that flat above me decided it would be a good idea to cook chicken nuggets in the toaster, in her drunken state she went off and left the kitchen to burn down.

I was not impressed as it ment 2 hrs standing in the freezing cold from 1 in the morning and i had a test at 9 next day.

was still funny though.

EDIT: No one was injured in any way.

That's the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. Holidays and festivals come from long before these "corporate traps" you speak of. If you think you can just celebrate holidays every day then you are the one that doesn't get it, and by it I mean the magic of holidays. It gives you something special, to make you feel special. A landmark day, something to look forward to, something you can celebrate with everyone. Something fun in the mass of boredom and monotony. Something that makes you happy when it comes, and creates joy and warmth everywhere, and creates memories you can reflect on. And do I care if i'm somehow tricked into paying some boss more than he needs? No. And if you don't want to buy anything, you can celebrate just the same. Holidays are more than the evil, greedy, materialization ball of BS that you make them out to be.

And if that doesn't get the cynical stick out of your ass then I just have one thing left to say to you: Don't try and kill the joy for others, don't dis the holidays.

And don't try and debate with me, and segment my words to turn them into something you can BS, because I won't listen.

I like the food, I like the day, but in the end, I like the family.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful excuse for our entire family to come together for one day (40 people under my roof). we eat, we talk, we laugh, we play games. It's just a really fun day where I get to family I don't see much. This year we had relatives from Boston who I haven't seen in 5 years, and I REALLY enjoyed that.

So you can rip on the commercialization of holidays if you want, and i'll agree. But the things I take from Thanksgiving and christmas aren't the gifts, they're the moments with family in my memories.

If that was directed at me:

First off, Christmas over here is much more good and pure than christmas in America, I mean, you took away the religious meaning and made up a story about a weird fat guy who lives on the Northpole with a bunch of elves, who can freeze time and flies around with rendeers...

What you did, is put two holidays together (Christmas and Saint nicholas day, for lack of a better name) and in my opinion, that makes it a little weird.

I have nothing against America however.

And about Thanksgiving: I don't celebrate it, so I have nothing against it.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone with that post, but all I was actually saying is: I prefer our Idea of christmas over the American one.

And by the way, i don't know what your last sentence was supposed to mean. We have Holidays and Happiness around here...

That's the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. Holidays and festivals come from long before these "corporate traps" you speak of.And I thought we were discussing what holidays had become. ;)

In ancient times holidays were when one had saved up enough food to have a party. If one was lucky one enjoyed oneself maybe two or three times a year in this fashion.

But now, we don't need it. In our western countries most of us have food on tap, so why wait for the winter solstice to have a party? Make every weekend a party. Make every day a party. Don't fall into the corporate trap for the sheep.

And do I care if i'm somehow tricked into paying some boss more than he needs? No.lol, you don't care? Then you're part of the problem. Stop being part of the problem, and become part of the solution.

And if that doesn't get the cynical stick out of your ass then I just have one thing left to say to you: Don't try and kill the joy for others, don't dis the holidays. Self, self, self, self, self! Do you really think my expression of my opinion on this matter is totally bound up with YOU and YOUR enjoyment of the holidays? Bit arrogant if so.

And don't try and debate with me, and segment my words to turn them into something you can BS, because I won't listen.Show me where I've misquoted you, or even paraphrased you babe, and you'll get a free cream cake. Call it an early Christmas present. ;)

Simalar but not as bad, as the toaster with the nuggets in was under the cupboards, the whole kitchen was gutted. everyone in the flat had to move out for a few weeks.

I ALWAYS, without exception put clothes on when the alarm went off, better to burn to death with dignity I always said. And of course it's just to damn cold not to.

Oh yes, of course since you don't live in America, your holiday must be more "good and pure" than ours. All this debating about why holidays are teh sux because it jump starts the economy is giving me the ****s. And as for blaming America for ruining your "good and pure" crap, The American version of St. Nicholas, or Santa Claus originally came from the Dutch version called Sint Klaas. The Dutch settlers in New Amsterdam (New York) brought this fun and lively tradition (some even say cult) to America. So you can stop blaming us, and start pissing and moaning to the Dutch.

This I agree with.... but it didnt start or stop with Christmas.... Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Valentines Day all seem to keep juggernauts like Target/Kmart and Hallmark tickin along....

what makes me even more sad about chistmas is that consumer fever seems to have hit countries that arent even Christian, like Japan, South Korea and even Turkey(I know this because Im Turkish).....

I dunno, I dont get it. I only had to start worrying about 'celebrating' christmas when i moved in with my gf 4 years ago. All it is now its an extra bit of spending in december, it doesnt add to or detract from the value of jesus(or Hazreti Isah as he is calle in the Kuran) teachings... I would like to add Isah, although being a very important prophet in the islamic faith doesnt get the same treatment(in fact none of the islamic prophets do)....

so, damn the dutch and the yanks for ruining christmas then... The Dutch are partially excused because they sell legal pot and have top quality porn :D ah, thats is what I would like for christmas :D

You can go blame the Dutch for Santa Claus, but our "Sinterklaas" doesn't have anything to do with Christmas at all. It's just an old man in a dress, that loves children, and brings them presents on his birthday - December 5th.

Then again, Americans always sucked when it comes to rip-offs :p

Exactly, i won't start 'moaning and pissing on the Dutch' because:

1.I'm Dutch.

2. we didn't ruin christmas with it. Over here, it's a tradition to give eachother presents at December the 5th. That way, we could celebrate christmas the way it should be, in my opinion.

And Cap'n... I called our Christmas more 'Good and pure' because we don't have any commercial crap attached to it.

EDIT: Y'know what? I'll just stop right here. If you want to blame us Dutch, at least know that I disagree for said reasons. The least thing i wanted to do with that one comment, was to hijack this thread.

generalizations... generalizations... tsk tsk.

Pay attention to this. We're not all fat, greedy, money laundering, *insert more generalizations here* Americans. Some of us do know what Christmas truly means: which is simply enjoy your family, enjoy your life, share your love for each other...

I'm sure some of your Dutchies also use Christmas as some sort of corporate money scheme too. So as the CapN well put: "Piss and moan" at them.:dozey:

To sum this thread up...

Person1:HOORAY FOR *insert holiday here*!!!
Person2:BOO! *insert person 1's country* f***ed around with *said holiday* and is no longer *insert some purpose*.
Person1:It isnt' like that.
Person2:*insert generalization of Person1's people*
Person1:We aren't all *said generalization*.
Person2:Yes you are.
Person1:No we aren't.
Person2:Yes you are.

Blah blah blah blah.

Americans are greedy fat *******s.
English all have bad teeth and are snooty.

Just about everyplace can have a generalization. But guess what? 95% of the time they are untrue.

Now enough pissing and moaning at each others religions/country/people and get back on the subject at hand...turkey is delicious.

PS:I don't believe in the generalisations btw ;)

Turkey is a wonderful holiday destination as well as holiday meal :D

But surely, generalisation or not, it's obviously the *americans* that have ruined EVERYTHING for EVERYONE, EVER, ALL THE TIME, EVEN TODAY ! :p
