Hi there. This week brings the fourth Thursday in November which means Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving, if that’s how you roll) here in the U.S.
Of course, the U.S. hardly holds the monopoly on days of thanks. China’s Mid-Autumn Festival fell on September 21 this year and traces its orgins back more than 2500 years. Canada’s Thanksgiving (Monday, October 10, 2021) dates back to 1578. Germany’s Erntedankfest happened the first Sunday in October, while Japan’s Kinrō Kansha no Hi (November 23) is at least 2000 years old.
Regardless of the date, or how long it’s been celebrated, taking a day to reflect on what we’re thankful for seems especially appropriate this year. So we’ll be shutting down the LinuxToday presses on Thursday, November 25 to spend the day with families and friends.
But we’ll be back on Friday, 26 November. Until then, thank you for being a reader, contributor, or supporter of LinuxToday.com.
