This reminds me, isn't it almost time for Christians to get all bent out of shape about Starbuck's holiday-themed cup?

That's why Japan has the best knives and pens, so they can pull off this cool stuff.

Good to hear those inspirational words from you, in this season of thankfulness and atonement.

We're between Yom Kippur (the day of atonement) and Thanksgiving (the day of thankfulness, I've heard). Christmas, I have been given to believe, is the celebration of the birth of a god made man for the sole purpose of atoning for our sins, and Christians, they claim, feel thankful for His coming. 

It's possible that I am mistaken about those things, and you have the straight truth that has eluded me all these years.

Lead me.

semichisam01 If you believe ANY of that, I feel bad for you. The first thanksgiving lead to the deaths of Millions of Native Americans. Christians did it first during the crusades. As for Yom Kippur, I'm not religious.

That is a really peculiar response.
Let me first reassure you that you need not feel bad. I'll be OK. But thank you for your concern.
It's encouraging that your first word was 'if', because I made no claim of belief.

"The first thanksgiving lead to the deaths of Millions of Native Americans."
(I assume you meant to write 'led', as lead in food was not a concern at that time.)
The main reason the Pilgrims survived that first winter, for which they had not prepared, is that most of the natives of the area were already dead, from diseases brought here by earlier visitors. The Pilgrims lived off of what was left in the empty villages, and thanked 'God' for having left it for them. In any case, it was not a thanksgiving feast that caused the near genocide which attended the usurpation of the continent by immigrants.

It is unclear what, exactly, you believe the Christians did during the Crusades.

You do not need to be religious to know that Yom Kippur is Hebrew for 'Day to Atone'.

semichisam01 They murdered. That's it. Bringing death to anyone who didn't believe Christ was god. He wasn't. There is no god, and killing in his name is against everything Christ taught. Christians are the least Christ-like people in the world. Hawkings was right:Religion is for idiots.

semichisam01 Thanksgiving was in October for many of us, and generally Thanksgiving is a specific holiday.  It does not have a 'season'.

Yom Kippur is indeed the day of atonement, but does not have a 'season'.

As for Christmas, it is a celebration of a birth.  Easter is the celebration of the Resurrection and is the peak of the Christian calendar.

Christmas has a 'season' because the Church moved the celebration of the birth to December to overlap the Yuletide celebrations and Saturnalia.

Of course, I did not claim that each holiday is its own season.
This time of year is generally rerferred to as the 'holiday season'. A number of holidays take place during this 'season'.
•One such holiday is Yom Kippur, the day of atonement.
•About a week after Yom Kippur is Thanksgiving day in Canada.
•About five weeks later is Thanksgiving in the U.S., although it was originally celebrated in October here, as well.
• Christmas comes about five weeks after Thanksgiving. It celebrates, as I wrote and you agreed, a birth. That birth took place for the purpose of atoning for the sins of all mankind, or so I was taught.
It is a well-known fact that the Roman Catholic Church moved Christmas to its present date to co-opt a major holiday of many pre-existing religions, but there is considerable disagreement as to when the birth actually took place. In any case, it is now a part of the 'holiday season'.

semichisam01 You've linked a handful of days that occur over 1/4 of the year that cover various celebrations and events and decided that this is the season of atonement and thankfulness.

You've not included Remembrance Day.  This day we remember all the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the betterment of their families and friends.  If anything, the connection between Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day is far, far stronger than any connection between Yom Kippur and Christmas.

I will also note, that these two days, Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day, are entirely separate from any religion-sponsored date.

So maybe we should say that the time between Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day should be the season of gratitude.

punko "So maybe we should say that the time between Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day should be the season of gratitude."

First, I can't argue with that. So let it be written. So let it be done.

Second, I was never very invested in the idea of a season of thankfulness and atonement. It iseemed a good way to describe the time after the harvest is in, the winter wood is stored and there's time to think. And some existing holidays bore that out.

Third, I don't know about the history of Thanksgiving in other countries, but it was originally sold as a religious holiday in the U.S.

Fourth, I'm not sure why you argued against it, but I have to admit that the general smart-assedness of my comment to zeegrr60 probably justified some pushback
