On Thursday the 24th we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving in the U.S. by eating a lot.
It took a while for the country to settle on a Thursday in November, but that's another story—which you'll probably find it in a blog here sometime.
We have a great deal to be grateful for, like being able to write books and get them published. And then we have this blog, where we find bits of history and put them out there for your edification and amazement. A great many more are edified and amazed than we'd ever hoped for.
So yes, we'll be giving thanks for our readers, definitely.
This week, though, we're taking time off from blogging, so that we can prepare for the big Thanksgiving dinner and spend time with our families. But we'll be back next week, with more great nerdy history stuff.
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.
