The Virtual Pub Is Open

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US, and, although not all of our contributors are USian, most of us are, so we're all going to take a long weekend. We'll be back full-time next Tuesday, and there will continue to be moderated daily Open Threads in the interim.

To everyone who will be marking Thanksgiving...Happy Thanksgiving!

To everyone who won't be...have a nice weekend!

In acknowledgement of what I will inadequately describe as the complicated history of this holiday, I recommend (re)reading Renee's great guest post, "What Are We Really Giving Thanks For?"

And in acknowledgement of the part of this holiday which is worth celebrating—that is, taking a moment to give thanks for that for which we are grateful—I would like to say that I am thankful for you, Shakers.
