But it would be nice to have a separate day to get together to celebrate thanks and the end of the harvest season too in Oz, I think.
Although our Australian harvest festival /dinner celebrations would have to be 6 months down the calendar from the American time to celebrate such a get-together I would imagine.
|Harvest Feast at the Salamanca Market|
site 218-219 is permanently closed?
|South Australia’s festival season |
hits all the right notes?
Apparently, we do celebrate "Black Friday" now though?
I don't know why the Australian government didn't try to snag Bluey (or pay Disney) to use in tourism adverts to sell Australia to the world, rather than some dumb animated kangaroo paired with an animated unicorn[?!].
I for one would be thankful if Australia could get its act together to celebrate some National Day of Thanksgiving in an Australian, and not an American way.
At least we have Christmas and New Years for family get togethers at this time of the year in Oz ... but no snow in summer to dream of down here:-)
