Big'hootin'festivities in'de'good'ole US'of'A! ..this coming Thursday?

Thanksgiving Day (noun)
      The fourth Thursday of November, observed as a legal holiday in the United States to commemorate the feast held at Plymouth in 1621 by the Pilgrim colonists and members of the Wampanoag people and marked by the giving of thanks to God for harvest and health.
      The second Monday of October, a legal holiday, celebrated in Canada by the giving of thanks to God for harvest and health.
       And by way of wishing & hoping, all our American neighbours will get some extra servings of Pumpkin Pie therefore, this is sent early, with this thought: "Come'on Mom's! ..get yer cookin gear ready?"; and in the meantime, here's a little poem y'all might enjoy; and maybe, get *IN THE MOOD* for your holiday? LOL!
       Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and
  from West,
From North and from South, come the pilgrim and
When the gray-haired New Englander sees round
  his board
The old broken links of affection restored,
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled
What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin
John Greenleaf Whittier (180792), U.S. poet. The Pumpkin, st. 2.
