Steve only does 10-pointers for Pagan festivals, Like Halloween and Yuletide BigGrin

... And Thanksgiving is a Political holiday? BigGrin

Actually, not being American, I've never really understood what Thanksgiving was celebrating (apart from eating too much turkey Smile).

Is it:
a) The Pilgrim Fathers actually getting to America without drowning etc.
b) ... getting to somewhere that wasn't British/French/whatever direct rule.
c) General thanks for whatever you can think of (family, health, etc)
d) Just an excuse for a holiday...
e) Something else...

According to Wikipedia, the answer is e)

Thanksgiving, also known as Thanksgiving Day, is a harvest festival. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. It is primarily a North American holiday which has generally become a national secular holiday with religious origins.

This is the shortest way to find out what's all about something you want to know - wikipedia. Can anyone says something without referencing wikipedia? Wink

On this site, yes, frequently.
We reference Books Online and MSDN instead. BigGrin
