(smirk) Good one.

However, since the point has come up...
Of course T-giving as we know it isn't period. Continuous English
settlement in the Western Hemisphere isn't period. It should not, however,
be difficult to find period harvest-home festivals that closely resemble
the early-colonies Thanksgivings in concept and structure (though the food
and guest list certainly would differ).

Safe travel and happy gatherings to all.
