Happy Thanksgiving...

Thanksgiving is a phenomenon special to North America. Traditionally celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, Thanksgiving is a big time holiday. Americans must be blessing those who decided to have thanksgiving not on a date, but thursday, which results in a four-day weekend.

I have come to understand (thanks to FRIENDS) this is festival is considered to be a sort of family and close friends get-together thing. This is especially relevant in USesque countries where family generally stays in different ends of the country. Turkey somehow is flavour of this season. This festival brings them a chance to be together and express their gratitude for the things whatever they are thankful for, but most thankful this year would be the producers of Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire. Already started with 102 million dollars in first weekend, fourth movie in this fabulous series is expecting to continue its run for the money in thanksgiving weekend and could easily be largest block-buster of the year, surpassing all previous HP movies. Only time will tell. Anyways, Wishing you all HAPPY THANKSGIVING with a couple of nice comic strip (including my favourite PHDcomics :-) ).
