On Thursday November 25th, the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving. The Two Nerdy History Girls are thankful for, among a great many other things, our readers. Some might say you really shouldn't encourage us, but you do, and we're grateful. Your participation has made history even more interesting and fun for us than it was.
For the next few days, though, we ask you to make your own historical fun, while we take a break for the holiday. We’ll be back next week with more nerdiness.
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
