Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US, and anyone else who may celebrate it.
Right back at you! =)
And be safe in your travels over the Holidays!
Thanks and you too Captn! Happy and joyous eating, socializing and doing something NOT UO related! Happy RL everyone!
A Happy Thanksgiving to all Britannians--wait that doesn't sound right....
I hate to be the one to bring this up , but this might be offensive to some of the Native Americans that play this game.
Hey Captain! Happy happy day for you and all players! Devs too and Gms and Ems and advisors and Stratics peoples! *llama bows*

Much to be thankful for, and very worthy of a celebration. :snoopy:Wishing all a wonderful day with family and friends.
I thought the native Americans celebrated thanksgiving along with the early settlers, didn't they? Isn't that the photo in all the school history books.
I HOPE none of our wonderful UO team even opens Stratics today...but if they do I want to thank them for all the hard work they've done for us. May you be blessed with lots of food and be surrounded by all of your loved ones on this day of thanks.
To the UO Stratics community...thank you for being you. It's nice to have a little virtual family to visit every day!
To those who do celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you remember all the things you have to be thankful for, hug all of your friends and family because we just don't do that enough these days, and enjoy the day
Happy Thanksgiving all! may you cook till your feet hurt, eat till your pants wont button, and enjoy every single moment with the people you love =) blessed be!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Now I am going back to the stove.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
That's just crazy talk. Have you been smokin the peace pipe?...la

Happy Thanksgiving to our UO Community! May you have a great day and best wishes tackling an in-game turkey for your virtual meal today.
The entire point of the original Thanksgiving was to thank the Native Americans for helping the pilgrims survive the winter. If they hadn't done that it was pretty much guaranteed that every single pilgrim would have starved to death since they had absolutely no idea how to farm in the new world and would have had no food if the Native Americans didn't teach them.
I don't think so ...... I could ask one she lives under my roof. Though she might be offended you would think so.
MOANS, TO MANY TURNIPS
in a show of solidarity with our friends down south ive asked my wife to prepare a turkey so we can celebrate Thanksgiving again with you guys!
any excuse to have more turkey!!
im sure there are Pilgrims that are offended by thanksgiving as well.
we are ignoring them as well, so dont feel bad.
Some are... some aren't... I asked the one that lives here with me and she thought the idea was funny... though she said they do call it "Happy we stole your land and killed your people day." She has opened my eyes to things I had considered but never thought I had any way of ever saying "I'm sorry." for.... I mean... Yes I think it's horrible the things "we" and I say "we" with some sense that my ancestors might have played a role in some of it... however there IS Native American blood in my family tree and my own children have more than I do... My ex-husband was 1/4 Cherokee Indian... so they are more Native American than I am... but still...
So do I think that what we did to the native peoples was right? NO. Is there anything I can do about it now? Not really. Though I do let my feelings be known that I don't think we should continue to treat these people as we do... Do I think that the Washington Redskins should change their name... Absolutely NOT. It's meant as an honor... the name was chosen because they respected the Native Peoples and thought they were great warriors... and named their team after them to honor that idea. Because they thought it was more of flattery than something silly like to make fun of them or dishonor who they were... and to argue otherwise is just silly. Don't they say mimicry is the strongest form of flattery? Anyway so... Happy we stole your country and killed your people day.
Was awesome enjoyed some great food... now I'm stuffed and sleepy... and I gave thanks to all those who helped get us where we are... including the native peoples of this country for teaching us about corn! Mmm.... corn. As an Iowan I love Corn. It's everywhere here and we wouldn't have it had the Native Peoples not shown us about it.
Don't know about him but I sure have.
Personally though, I believe he may be a Giant Turkey in disguise....
That's what she said. She is 100% Native American... born and raised on the reservations in Montana... and she said with a laugh when I asked her if Thanksgiving offended her..... "Heck no... I think it's funny... but we call it "Happy I stole your land and killed your people day."... or she said that at least a few of those who still carry old grudges do... but she finds it funny and likes Thanksgiving.... loves the food. I can't actually post exactly what she said about the ones who hold the grudges but lets just say that she implied that their seats were pained.
How is that funny? that is a rhetorical question btw because you are being offensive.
The OP wanted to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving. We are not going to get into the politics of it in this thread.
I hope everyone is enjoying all that lovely family time and have a great holiday weekend.
Your the one who brought it up. At any rate she doesn't find Thanksgiving in the least bit offensive, and she enjoys it. She just calls it something else.
Which she has a very odd sense of humor but who am I to judge. I was just saying that I had never thought to ask her if she thought it'd be offensive if we celebrated Thanksgiving with her. Which she enjoyed and liked eating... and was VERY happy to be included in my "family". Where she tells me she has felt more "at home" here than anywhere she's ever lived even home on the reservations. So... I asked her. Gave you her answer. I'm sorry it offends you that she found it funny.
