We would like to extend our thanks to all of you for visiting our blog throughout this past year. And we send out A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours for a wonderful and happy Celebration!
“In the 19th century, the modern Thanksgiving holiday started to take shape. In 1846, Sarah Josepha Hale, editor of a magazine called Godley’s Lady’s Book, campaigned for an annual national thanksgiving holiday after a passage about the harvest gathering of 1621 was discovered and incorrectly labeled as the first Thanksgiving.
It wasn’t until 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln declared two national Thanksgivings; one in August to commemorate the Battle of Gettysburg and the other in November to give thanks for “general blessings.” ~National Geographic: The First Thanksgiving.
It’s been a very long time since we’ve played Wizard101. That’s because we have become addicted to Pirate101.
There have been a lot of new updates and enhancements to Wizard that we don’t know about. For instance, a reader let us know that the 9th yardbird isn’t in the location we have here on the Keep..they put a teleport hub there. And we don’t know where the new on is…..yet. But I’m not sure when we’ll be able to get back into the game to find it.
A lot has changed in the Wizarding Spiral. New worlds, new pets and mounts, new equipment and quests have all been added to the game since the last time we were there in 2014.
There are many wonderful Fan Sites that focus on Wizard101. Don’t forget to visit with them. You can find an official list of sites on the Wizard101 FanSites list.
The International Day of Awesomeness is a celebration of awesomeness. People are awesome every day, frequently don’t realize it, and their feats of awesomeness are rarely recognized. International Awesomeness day aims to fix that, with a special day to both perform and celebrate all sorts of feats of awesomeness!
