Azulvioleta6- A little history lesson here ;)

The first Canadian Thanksgiving was celebrated by Martin Frobisher, an explorer from England, who arrived in Newfoundland in 1578. He wanted to give thanks for his safe arrival to the New World. It's now celebrated more closely related to the harvest festivals in Europe rather than the USA's Thanksgiving.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am curious about Canadian Thanksgiving...do you have a cultural story around the holiday or is it just a harvest celebration?

In the United States there is a complex mythology around Thanksgiving based on the story of the Mayflower pilgrims and their relationship with the local indigenous people in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzón, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba

Somehow or other, the US always seems to think that we need to help everyone...to the expense of the average citizen who pays the taxes... I'm glad that there are SOME level headed people in Congress...although right now, I think they've gone in hiding and the "tea-baggers" have taken over. But, my years tell me that this, too shall pass.
