Happy 10/10/10 Canada… errhh… Thanksgiving!
October 10, 2010 4 Comments
… or as we say in some part of this country… Bonne journée de l’Action Grâce!
Yes I know.
It’s really on the second Monday in October – truly tomorrow.
BUT today is a rather unique and special day, AND its the day that us single ladies are getting together with a wonderful menu by KC, but shared at chez Janet’s… and shared by a few of us single chicadees.
Today is a cool day, a once-in-a-century day: 10/10/10
NO! Not because this is a cool binary code that geeks around the world unite under but really has meaningful significance… if you are Chinese… or share a reverence for the supernatural, the ethereal… and that she encompasses.
The date in question is considered lucky in Chinese culture, because the number 10 represents perfection or completion, according to the “I Ching,” an ancient Chinese text.
In numerology, it represents: new beginnings, the end of a cycle/start of a new cycle, harmony, creative energy, ‘whole’ containing all its unital parts. It’s ultimate message is: We have come to a time in your life, both as an individual and collectively as the mass of humanity, whereupon change is no longer avoidable.
And honestly, I am all down for this. I’ve had nothing but changes going on in my life for the last 2-3 years.
It’s a very auspicious time.
I like that.
So what better day for a bunch of single ladies, albeit unplanned as to the actual date, to get together in a time of grace and thankfulness, to, well… welcome change, to let go of the old and let in the new… a time for new beginnings?!
Couldn’t be better, actually!
So… pick up your forks and knives, cut into that piece of turkey roulade that I painstakingly made, with all the yummy bountiful harvest side dishes this season brings us… and let us be Thankful.
Thankful for changes that are coming
Thankful for the times we went thru
Thankful for our freedom
Thankful for our abundance in challenging times
Thankful for friendships, old and new
And… well. Simply Thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving from me to you, on this crazy unique… once in a century, day!!!
May the change you set forth be good and fruitful.
NOW… lets Oktoberfest… errhh EAT!!!
Oh and another cool and funky crazy fact about October 2010:
5 Fridays/ 5 Saturdays & 5 Sundays in the month of October 2010… dija know that??
