Thanksgiving is Coming Soon! Here are some festive Holiday Hunts Happening Now in Second Life- Ceciliarosalie Reporting…



Thanksgiving day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the U.S and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of harvesting and of the preceding year. Although it is mostly referred as An American holiday there are several places around the globe which hold similar traditions and celebrations for the day. Thanksgiving day has its roots in religious and cultural  customs. Strange as it may seem there’s not a fixed date for this holiday and dates vary depending on the exact country separately.

Let’s have a closer look on these different dates

Canada: on the second Monday of October , U.S.: Thanksgiving, currently celebrated on the third Thursday of November, Norfolk Island: Thanksgiving is celebrated on the last Wednesday of November and in Germany is in early October, though German festival is influenced by Christian religion.

Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, but many have their own traditions that they follow each year. The best thing about Thanksgiving is spending time with family. Many people live far from their inmates and travel long distances by any means of transport to be with their loved ones. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year!


Traditional foods are a large part of Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families include the entire family in the food preparation. Traditional foods include turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, cornbread, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Many people serve pie for dessert at the end of the meal. Popular pie flavors are pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato, and apple.

Many generous folks use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to help the less fortunate. Some people volunteer to serve food at homeless shelters on Thanksgiving Day and others donate to shelters or participate in canned food drives.

The Wishbone Feature!!!

Some families include breaking the turkey's wishbone as part of their celebration. The wishbone is found attached to the breast meat in the turkey's chest. After the meat has been removed and the wishbone has had a chance to become dry and brittle, two people each take one end of the bone, make a wish, and pull. Whoever ends up with the larger part of the bone gets their wish!

But what happens in SL on Thanksgiving day?

Just like in RL avatar families are gathered feasting and celebrating Thanksgivings Day.
