Why should other countries celebrate it? It's a North American celebration: there was only one Mayflower, and only the Mayflower's pilgrim fathers arrived to North America to share the turkey of the natives. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

It's a national feast in USA and Canada, so having T-day celebrated in Italy, for instance, would be nonsense, it would be almost surreal. Like celebrating 4th of July in Burkina Faso. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

It's incredible that I, who live in a country where Thanksgiving Day is completely unknown, know it just by seeing so many American movies on the topic, and still there are people who celebrate it and don't know why. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

BTW, have a happy Thanksgiving Day, my North American mates!

Happy Thanksgiving all!

BTW Jetenginedr, that's one great picture and one heck of a smart turkey. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Wait till someone tries to turn him on. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I think the turkey FM's are way over modeled tho. LOL

According to the Reichsluftfartministeriumbundeswehrachtengebenkuch en, the Cranberry Sauce did not enter service until March 1945. Why such an obviously "fantasy plane" should be in the game is beyond me...

Happy Thanksgiving to all and my hope for a peaceful resolution in the Ukraine as soon as possible...

Also to our armed forces wherever they are today...may they soon return home safely to their families and friends.

Read this:


humm..weird...well copy and paste it anyway. I would fix it but I am exercising my stomach for the upcoming feast...lol

Mmmm, interesting, although I didn't say that no other countries have a similar feast.

I said that only in North America there's a Thanksgiving Day on November 25th with the turkey, the mashed maroons and so... because this celebration is in fact based in North American historical matters.

One other thing is a feast to celebrate the harvest. There's one not only in every country, but also in any little village or town in the world which lives on agriculture.

The fact that Germany is adopting the turkey and other American uses to make a celebration is not a proof.

We the Spanish also started celebrating Halloween recently, when in our culture the night before All-saints day have always been a mournful and quiet religious feast, and we have also incorporated Christmas Tree and Santa Claus, instead of the traditional Bethlehem figures and Three Wise Men feast of Epiphany -for the presents. It's just a sample on how American mass-media is slowly swallowing all Western World traditions to create a modern Western homogeneous culture.

But I had to work today. And I ate macaroni and tomato sauce. You see, no Thanksgiving Day here.

And I missed it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Thanks for the wishes guys, I hope everyone else that celebrates Thanksgiving has a great one!!

LMAO! Reichsluftfartministeriumbundeswehrachtengebenkuch en, I think they also decided that the stuffing was introduced into service 6 hours before the end of the dinner! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Happy thanksgiving, here in Canada we celebrate it the first monday of october...probably because winter hits a little earlier (no snow here yet tough). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
