New The Thanksgiving Song.
"Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother's house we go ..."

An interesting piece about the author of the poem - Lydia Marie Child:

There is an awful lot of music associated with the Christmas holiday. But when it comes to Thanksgiving…not so much. If you’re anything like me, the one song you grew up singing on this holiday was “Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go.” But until this week, I never knew anything about the origins of that song.

It comes from a poem written in 1844 by a woman named Lydia Marie Child.

Have a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving, everyone.

Cheers,
Scott.
New Amen, bro!

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
