3 Thanksgiving Facts

    Hello all, well, this post might be a tad lad but I’m posting it anyway. This is especially geared towards all you history buffs out there. As to the accuracy of these facts, well, I will leave that up to you. 😉

1. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving to the next-to-last Thursday in November to prolong the holiday shopping season, many Republicans rebelled. The holiday was temporarily celebrated on different dates: November 30 became the “Republican Thanksgiving” and November 23 was “Franksgiving” or “Democrat Thanksgiving

2. Long before the Pilgrims, native Hawaiians celebrated the longest thanksgiving in the world—Makahiki, which lasted four months, approximately from November through February. During this time, both work and war were forbidden

3. The people of the Virgin Islands, a United States territory in the Caribbean Sea, celebrate two thanksgivings, the national holiday and Hurricane Thanksgiving Day. Every Oct 19, if there have been no hurricanes, Hurricane Day is held and the islanders give thanks that they have been spared.

    Thought that was interesting? So did I. 😉


First Pay….

Once again, it’s been too long…I must confess I’m somewhat of a procrastinator when it comes to blogging. And as life picks up, I find that I have less and less free time on my hands to devote to actually posting something.

Anyway, the other day it was my first pay-day at my job as an administrative assistant. It’s not a lot to some people but to me, it’s quite a bit. There is always something sort of exciting about getting paid for a job well done. It’s a reward for hard work! Sadly, most of it is going to go to certain bills I’ve incurred and other necessities. 😦 Oh well, until next pay-day….
