Episode-1256- The Thanksgiving Special for 2013

Note – You can get a full transcript of the original portion of this show here.  Many families read this and the Christmas show as part of their holidays.

Today one day before the great American Holiday we stop and pause to think about what we have to be thankful for.

The beginning of today’s show is new, most of it is rebroadcast of the first year I did this show.

The beauty of this show is I feel it is something you can share with friends and family. The real history of Thanksgiving is actually a lot more interesting and special then many of the myths.

Tune in today to hear…

  • I have found our group of soldiers to sponsor for Christmas this year
  • Why much of what we learn about Thanksgiving is wrong or at least inaccurate
  • How Thanksgiving was at one time considered a “damn yankee holiday”
  • How Thanksgiving became a way for our nation to heal and reunite
  • How the date of Thanksgiving has often been moved around and why
  • The truth about those big buckles the pilgrims wore and all that black clothing
  • What feasting meant 100 years ago to our prior generation that we have forgotten

She has come from laughing and teasing me about wanting to be a farmer to taking permaculture design classes, setting up our garden, and even helping me clean a rabbit the was enjoying said garden.

  8. Very thankful today. For The amazing friends we’ve made this year and neighbors who drop in unexpectedly with beer and wine, (Thanks Bruce ;). My wife, daughter and I spent our first thanksgiving here at home. Just us this year. I did most of the cooking and, with Keith Snow’s tips, dinner was a huge success.

    I am thankful to Jack for TSP and this community of people as well. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

  9. The big thing you forgot about Thanksgiving being the true man holiday, at least here in upstate NY, is the quiet morning spent in a tree stand freezing in the wind and snow waiting for a gorgeous eight point that chooses not to come by (this year at least.)
    I am thankful for a great year. A family that is slowly coming around to our way of thinking. A wife that is truly the yin to my yang. Kids who are developing into strong citizens. A homestead that is slowly coming around. I am truly thankful for just being alive it beats the tar out of the alternative.
    Thank You.

  10. I am thankful for my family and friends for Jack “wakening”
    me to whats really going on . For all the preppers out there who stand together.

  11. I am thankful that I was given the chance to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.

  12. I am thankful for all the good that came my way during the past 52 years. I am also thankful for some of the bad which, by enduring through it, has enriched my life…

    (And Jack, you’re still a celebrity…in the best sense of the word, like it or not. I enjoyed meeting you and Dorothy at the Liberty Forum, but respect your decision not to put yourselves through the stress and disruption of frequent travel. Hope you and your family relax and enjoy throughout this holiday season.)
