Thanksgiving On Fade To Black

HAPPY THANKSGIVING


According to most sources, the first thanksgiving took place sometime in November of 1621 between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians at Plymouth.
In 1789 George Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving a holiday on the 4th Thursday of November. In 1863 it became a national holiday when Abraham Lincoln made a presidential proclamation during the Civil War. He set it to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November. From that point forward, each year a president would proclaim a date to be the national holiday and therefore it had a tendency to change each year. (according to NPR.org and wikipedia) This began to change when in 1933 there was a November that had 5 Thursday’s in it. (Hmm.. just like THIS November.) So when traditionally, up to this point, Thanksgiving fell on the last November, (usually by presidential proclamation) which usually IS the 4th November of the month, there would actually be one more Thursday in November.
This particular November in 1933 two Thanksgivings ended up being observed when retailers had asked President Roosevelt to move the holiday up a week instead of having it as the last Thursday of the month.
A snippet of a letter from the Downtown Association of Los Angeles reads:

“You will appreciate the importance that an additional week incorporated in this great holiday season will have upon the distribution of activities of the entire United States and the added impetus that will be given thereby to the efforts of the administration and the N.R.A. to increase employment and purchasing power.”

Roosevelt denied this request and as tradition had been in the past, Americans ate their Turkey on the last Thursday of the month. While he was still president, another 5 Thursday November rolled around again in 1939. Again retailers wanted it to be a week early to give people an extra week to do Christmas shopping. This time Roosevelt gave in. This actually caused a bit of an issue as many people felt this was just so those businesses could make more money. Some state Governors decided to have Thanksgiving on the last Thursday anyway. So for several years different states would celebrate Thanksgiving on different Thursdays. Then on Dec 26th, 1942, Congress passed a law that officially made Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday of November.

So go eat some Turkey.

    Great show last night! Mr. Wilcock is on a mission, it's a collective 'global' mission, to synthesize multiple fields of information in pursuit of Truth . The point that really stuck with me is that this is a 'team' effort—in-fighting and character defamation will not further the Cause. Disclosure is in our hands-And it may very well be a Democratic phenomenon. Awesome stuff last night! Keep seeking, debating, re-evaluating. Empowerment, Humility, Open-mindedness...Stay Human, we got this!

  • Just listened to Emery Smith episode , Wow!! so interesting and exciting. Have also been catching up on David's show on Gaia, the last ones with Emery, and I want to say a big THANK YOU to Emery and all of you for bringing this out. I comsider myself aware and try to be a conscious being, but it can be tough some days to stay positive. This was such a boost, in positive way, for me .... and I'm thinking others as well. It really helps that Emery, David & Jimmy are sll positive folks, but the info disclosed is so amazing!! There has been such a conflict going on the disclosure community for awhile and it was dragging me down, along with the whole to the stars junk, but this really brought back the excitement and curiosity I felt before. Looking forward to more shows and sharing to anyone I can get to listen .... slim pickings some days LOL Worked in the medical field for 30 yrs and love the tidbits dropped about that! Healing wounds, amazing idea and hope we see more of that and many others things soon! One thing I am really hoping for is global think tanks for exactly this kind of stuff, there are many brilliant folks out there with great ideas, but no possibility to discuss or debate ... actually it's been the exact opposite and it's sad to think of what has been lost to time, like the folks who passed on without sharing their knowledge and experiences, as Emery mentioned. So glad you decided not to be like that and speak out. What an wonderful time to be alive and be witnessing all these changes. Keep it coming guys and thanks again. omamu: on Emery Smith On Fade To Black March 19th

  • Onstellar registration SNAFU 1 message Abraham KovlerAK 13 Mar 2018, 22:35 TO [email protected] FOLDER: Sent Dear webmaster, Because of tonight's program, March 13, 2018, I tried to register for Onstellar because Jimmy encouraged us All to strongly, but he failed to tell us that you need an Ethyrium account in order to do so. NOT only that, but say you are born in 1945, like I am, you have to use this EXCEEDINGLY TWIDDLY WHATCHAMACALLIT that forces you to tap once for each month starting with March, then going All the way back, month by month til you get to the previous year and then do that FRACKING TAPPING until the year before that, etcetera etcetera! Gawd, by next year I shall have succeeded to register. Why make this so damn TWIDDLY and hard? I am so disappointed because it sounded like such a promising program for me to create something on!!! Please help! Sincerely, AbraHamlet -- Sent from Yandex.Mail for mobile abrahamlet: on Fade To Black Presents OnStellar March 12th
