Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians amongst us!   And for the rest of you who don't celebrate this holiday, just have a great weekend!

I thought Thanksgiving was an American tradition, what with their whole Native Americans -> Settlers land ownership... transition. Why do Canadians celebrate it? Is it because of the Inuits? We Australians just make our Prime Minister say sorry to our native peoples once a year...

But I digress... Thanksgiving in Canada? Since when?

Well, there's also "Thanksgiving" in Austria actually. This has nothing to do with settlers, rather with thanking for a good harvest, though we don't get a day of because of that. That might be similar in other countries. But Wikipedia sheds some light on the Canadian version, see here.

Be it as it is: Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians out there! :)

I actualy think thanksgiving is a very ancient religous holiday, stretching back to the Middle East and Rome. American's celebrate it in November because the pilgrims celebrated it alongside the native americans.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
