Happy Thanksgiving to all of my DW friends! I realize we are from all parts of the world and not everyone is celebrating this holiday today but it gives me an excuse to express how mighty thankful I am to all of you for your support, encouragement, lessons and laughter that you've given me. I'm honored to be a part of such a community!


So Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays and Happy Drumming to all of you!

No matter what our backgrounds are, everyday we are alive and able to play music, we have something to be thankful for.

This is also the beginning of Hanukkah. It is a rare occurrence for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah to overlap, so I want to send my best wishes for both occasions to our Jewish forum friends.

I'm going to say this and be done. I even hate to go there but it's really sticking in my craw. Gruntersdad, anyone who knows me knows that I'm not afraid to say anything.

I said Happy Holidays because the holidays are Thanksgiving and Hanukkah which makes it plural and it's not Christmas yet. Also, I really don't appreciate someone telling me what I need to say. My beliefs or non-beliefs may not be the same as yours. That's okay too. I meant no disrespect to anyone and to be corrected when there was nothing to correct me about really ticks me. As an administrator, I would have thought you would have stayed away from such a religious comment here.

It's a shame I can't even say something nice without it turning into a religious commentary. The whole thing has really kind of dampened my spirit today and that's a shame. If the moderators now feel they need to remove this thread because of these comments, I'll understand but I really needed to get that out of my system.

I still hope everyone has a nice day, whatever you chose to call it or how you choose to celebrate it.

+1000. We, meaning the human race, need more inclusion, not separation. To me "Happy Holidays" includes everybody who is celebrating a special day or season. What is wrong with it?

I meant no offense and wasn't offended by your wishes. I misunderstood your "holidays" reference and was only commented because so many companies and others have Gone away from in an effort to be politically correct. Please accepts apology.

It's just not Thanksgiving if the cops aren't called....

I had an old girlfriend who was dead serious when she said that.

You have to wonder what goes on at some families tables lol.

I'm going to a jam in the city after family time is done, woo hoo!
