Earlier Thanksgivings in North America:
According to some historians, the first celebration of Thanksgiving in North America occurred during the 1579 voyage of Martin Frobisher from England, in search of the Northwest Passage. His third voyage, to the Frobisher Bay area of Baffin Island in the present Canadian Territory of Nunavut, set out with the intention of starting a small settlement. His fleet of fifteen ships was outfitted with men, materials, and provisions. However, the loss of one of his ships through contact with ice, along with many of the building materials, was to prevent him from doing so. The expedition was plagued by ice and freak storms, which at times scattered the fleet; on meeting again at their anchorage in Frobisher Bay, "... Mayster Wolfall, a learned man, appointed by Her Majesty's Counsel to be their minister and preacher, made unto them a godly sermon, exhorting them especially to be thankful to God for their strange and miraculous deliverance in those so dangerous places ...". They celebrated Holy Communion and, "The celebration of divine mystery was the first sign, scale, and confirmation of Christ's name, death and passion ever known in all these quarters." (The notion of Frobisher's service being first on the continent has come into dispute, as Spaniards conducted similar services in Spanish North America during the mid-16th century, decades before Frobisher's arrival.)
Years later, French settlers, having crossed the ocean and arrived in Canada with explorer Samuel de Champlain, from 1604, also held feasts of thanks. They formed the Order of Good Cheer and held feasts with their First Nations neighbours, at which food was shared.
Happy Thanksgiving, you crazy, gluttonous, guitar geeks!
and actually 2020 has been a good year for our immediate family, grateful for this.
Happy Thanksgiving TDPRI!
I kicked off my Thanksgiving last night with the annual viewing of “The Last Waltz”. Last night was the 44th anniversary of the concert.
We followed that up with the annual viewing of “Planes, Trains & Automobiles”.
I’m grateful for many things in my life, like my family and small circle of friends. But you folks on the TDPRI are no less important to me. Thanks for being my extended bubble and for all the laughs and the tears this year.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I just made a broccoli, cheese and rice casserole to take to family dinner. My older brother just moved here, so I'm very happy about that.
Thankful for health.
Thankful for job.
Thankful for family.
Thankful for new relationship (still working on it).
It's 75 degrees here and a sunny day!
No. It’s not happy and I don’t have anything to give thanks to.
Best to all. May you get first call on the Turkey leg or your favorite dish.
Guitar geeks unite! Happy thx giving.
Happy Thankgiving @blowtorch and to all of our TDPRI family.
We are cooking our traditional large turkey dinner, but then having a family Zoom session with our extended family. Then we are making "To Go" Thanksgiving dinners and delivering them to our somewhat local "single" people who are sheltering in place. It is time to be thankful and a time to give.
Everyone stay safe.
Bring on the baked brown sugar sweet potatoes with 3" of toasted marshmallows on top! Followed by dessert, coffee, and a myocardial infarction at 7pm.
Let's not get too carried away out there...
Enjoy the day everyone
Back at you Blowtorch!
