    Smile It's the season to celebrate

    We are a unique worldly united group of Flight Simulation Enthusiast and mostly we are Flight Sim Builders.

    Within our group we come from many international boundaries with an abundance of cultures. We all respect each other, so we may gain our knowledge of a hobby we love. This above all is the most wonderful aspect of our hobby, the comradeship. I'm thankful for this above all.

    This is the season of many international cultures to begin celebrations. There are so many different customs I'm not familiar with, I would love to hear about them. If you come from an area that celebrates a particular custom and would like to share, please do so.

    To start, in the U.S., tomorrow (Thursday) we celebrate "Thanksgiving Day," a day to think of events or even material things we are thankful for.

    I wish you all Happy Thanksgiving Day.

    Re: It's the season to celebrate

    I always wondered what thanksgiving day was, we don't have this in the UK.

    The closest thing we have which is mainly celebrated by the church is the harvest festival where you donate food to the church, who offer it to charities, the homeless and elderly, it is delivered as a small hamper as a piece offering.

    I believe that on thanks giving day, you eat lots of food and have strangers or neighbours round for dinner?

    Maybe the TV leads us to believe that lol!

    Alex you are 100% correct, except that we also in addition, by the use of community organizations and churches, take this time to help the needy in countless ways.

    Yes, and it certainly was (and is) a wonderful event to be thankful for and celebrate!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all the My Cockpit folks!

    Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated primarily in Canada and the United States. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. While perhaps religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now primarily identified as a secular holiday.
    The date and location of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention. The traditional "first Thanksgiving" is the celebration that occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621. The Plymouth celebration occurred early in the history of what would become one of the original thirteen colonies that became the United States. The celebration became an important part of the American myth by the 1800s.
    That first Thanksgiving is believed to be held by the Pilgrim Fathers who left Leyden (the Netherlands) and sailed with the Mayflower to the New Land. The first harvest failed and they would have died from starvation if it wasn't for the local inhabitants who helped them as well as an Indian Summer which resultet in a harvest in November. The way Thanksgiving is held would relate to the festivities (on 3 October) around the relief of Leyden in 1575 from the siege of the Spaniards, which the Pilgrim Fathers attended during their stay in Leyden from 1609 till 1621.
