Happy Thanksgiving MFC!Happy Thanksgiving MFC!

Hello MFC, and Happy Thanksgiving from maddynamite here in the States!

Thanksgiving is a US federal holiday and one of the best days of the year in my opinion. (Some info if you'd like to read up on it: en.wikipedia.or...).

This holiday means different things to different people. Some people see it as a day to give thanks to God, others as celebrating history. I like to give thanks to my family and my ancestors who came from Italy to the US. A small percentage of people think of it as White Shame Day, but they're free to think whatever they want as long as they don't hurt anyone.

Anyway, my husband and I have donated money to some charities this year, even though we are trying to save money for our own house. This was not a great year for us, but we are still better off than most people in our state, and we felt that we could donate to help others this year. I am very thankful to my family for supporting us during this past year.

MFC, have you done any charitable work or donating this year? What are you thankful for? I look forward to reading your responses :)

I wish everyone good wishes, and fat wallets as we approach the "Spendening" tomorrow D:

maddynamite (4 anos atrás) #2483173It's tough, because you want to help people on the streets, but you never know what they're going to buy with your money (drugs, booze etc.). A loving family is certainly something to be thankful for! :)

Yeah, there was a recent case in Singapore where this old lady went around telling people sob stories and earning lots of money. If you're curious you can read it here singaporeseen.s... :D
I'm definitely thankful for my family! ^.^

TyjosAzari (4 anos atrás) #2481648I'm having a good quiet Thanksgiving after working moving a big piece of Furniture around.
I'm right now watching a movie I traditionally watch on Thanksgiving.
Jurassic Park

Main thing I'm thankful is that I've still got my Physical Abilities [I'm disabled so I'm very thankful I'm not fully disabled!]


An excellent choice of movie :) It's almost like adding insult to injury (eating turkey then watching a movie about dinosaurs, who evolved into birds haha). I hope you had a great Thanksgiving :)

xueren (4 anos atrás) #2481535I usually drop money to the old uncles playing an instrument at the MRT station or I would buy tissue from the old people selling them on the streets. Sometimes, there'll be people selling things like pens, earpiece or flowers for $10 and telling you that the proceeds goes to charity. I'll just buy them but this one time, my friend saw me and told me they cheat your money. I don't really believe him but I try to avoid them these days.
My family don't celebrate thanksgiving but I'd like to thank them for putting up with my collection. Lol.

WiseKitsune77 (4 anos atrás) #2481416I'm spending time with my family and watching Macy's Thanksgiving day parade :D

I hope you had a great day! The last time I watched the parade was a few years ago. They had Rick Astley as a surprise performer on a float and "Rick Rolled" everyone XD
