I have found with quite some surprise that there's no book on Thanksgiving in the catalog (or, at least no book with that title). All we have are a few short works and poems in various collections. Hence, my suggestion, obviously for next year, unless we find a big bunch of very enthusiastic readers: :wink:

Thanksgiving
It's origin, celebration and significance as related in prose and verse.

It contains many short stories, poems, sermons, and in the end even some plays centered around Thanksgiving, from various authors. Seems both interesting and fun!
Cheers,
Ava.

Anyone else? We do have a year... :wink:

Sure, but it's going to be expensive. The flight ticket alone... :roll: And then all the sightseeing... I mean, there are sights in Scotland, right?

Just tell me when you have saved enough, ok? :mrgreen:
Cheers,
Ava.

Of course there are! We call them "hills"... :twisted:
