Thank you to all the HubMobsters who made a success of the Halloween HubMob. We had so many good quality entries that Shirley
had to make a second HubMob hub to house all your terrific contributions. We managed a total of 50 hubs!!!
This week we are going into thanksgiving mode. Not just Thanksgiving Day, but thanksgiving in its wider meaning.
Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday, but the idea of an annual celebration to thank God (whoever your god is) goes back to ancient times. Long before Thanksgiving Day originated in America, there were harvest festivals celebrated all around the world. Those harvest festivals are much like Thanksgiving Day in their conception, they all thank a god for what they have. Even now, all of us have something to be thankful for so why not take the opportunity and be thankful this week for all those little things that make our life worthwhile and bring a smile to our faces.
Some ideas for a Thanksgiving hubmob hub are:
History of Thanksgiving day
Thanksgiving celebrations in North America
Thanksgiving celebrations in Canada
Thanksgiving around the world
Thanksgiving colouring pages
Why thanksgiving day?
Your personal thanksgiving list
How to say thanks to those you love
Myths about the first thanksgiving
Ancient thanksgiving harvest festivals
Thanksgiving festivals in other countries: Sukkoth, Chung Ch'ui, Pongal, Erntedankfest
To join this week's HubMob please follow the steps below:
1. YOU MUST START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK. Choose the Answer the Request green button. Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option.
2. Choose a relevant title for your Hub to get a good ranking in the search engines, AVOID starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"
3. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/22693/hubm … ew&rss
4. Add the HubMob graphic to your hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.
5. After you publish your HubMob Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why. Take advantage of the free publicity!
Hi, I live in Sabah, Malaysia, North Borneo. Though I am Chinese I live amongst local indigenous people who has a rich tradition of annual thanksgiving festival which is a community wide celebrations, different from the North American thanksgiving which is more family oriented.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, great topic and great holiday. Experienced Thanksgiving once when I stayed in California for 3 months. The festivities (and the sale) are really something. Hope I get enough material to write another hubmob for this one .
I agree Princessa, Shirley deserves the limelight this week, I for one can't imagine organizing 50 hubs. Great Job, Shirley!
Thanksgiving,one of my favorite times of the year. This will be fun...
Thanks, MG! It gets faster the more you do it.
Thank-you for the mention, Princessa. You always choose great topics but wow, was last week a popular one! We'll have lots of Hallowe'en content for the search engines to find. Think I hear a cash register.
I'll get all the late Hallowe'en entries into the second hub sometime today.
Here is mine:

It is amount my Iranian friend's first Thanksgiving.
I decided to do a personal hub for this. Not very commercial, but I wanted to get this out there.
weew here's mine finally:
Good ol night oil lol
good night Hubbers *yawn*
Hi, I love HubMob and this is my link :
http://hubpages.com/hub/Chung-Chui-The- … g-Festival
I decided to write about Chinese Thanksgiving because that is the only Thanksgiving tradition which is very close to me. I'm not 100% Chinese but I've inherited some Chinese blood so eat a moon cake on Chung Ch'ui day is common for me. Happy Thanksgiving!
Only the second day and we already have 5 Thanksgiving hubs!!! hold on Shirley this might be another very busy week
This is the link to my Thanksgiving hub:
It's about all my sister and I have to be thankful for, which is everything, but most of all each other.
Ah, Shirley, yet another one! You're gonna get inundated, but that's a good thing, for people to love this holiday of giving thanks.
People love to say thank you--how about that?
This is the link to my Thanksgiving hub:
Cheers Thanksgiving Orphans
Hi, my country has so many thanksgiving traditions for hundreds of years. So, I decided to introduce some of them. There are many more but I can not put them all in just one hub. Enjoy

Thanksgiving Southern Family Feast
http://hubpages.com/hub/Thanksgiving-So … mily-Feast
Thanksgiving Dinner was always a big deal growing up. We always had a feast with all the aunts, uncles and cousins from my mom’s side of the family. This meant dozens of relatives and tons of great food. The women did all of the cooking, and let me tell you, my mom and all of my aunts are great cooks. I’m going to share with you the traditional Southern Thanksgiving Feast that we always had at my house.

Here's another one.
Our Thanksgiving is this weekend. Guess I'd better get a move on and get the hub published before the turkey and stuffing.
Hastily done perhaps, but done all the same.
RGraf, you are smokin'! Three already.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Thanksgiving-In … ie-Recipes
Lovely recipes, it made my mouth water looking at those pictures. Thankfully we are having a pumpkin festival near my town next weekend so I'll be able to go and pick some delicious pumpkins to practice your suggested recipes
These are my little ones in last year's Tranzault Pumpkin festival:
Hey everyone, here's my hub - Thanksgiving and My Ongoing Dilemma!
Wow it looks like this is going to be another big one, Shirley!
O.k. I give up! Can someone on the team tell me how and or where I can get the smiley faces that works in the forums...
When you reply, to the bottom right of the dialogue box are the words "Formatting Tips". Click there and it will show you how to do lots of faces, italics, bold etc.
Wow!!! 15 already, I hope I can find the time to slip one this week. I haven't written a hub for long enough now and this is an inspirational topic to get me back in hubbing!
Don't forget to have a look at Ryan's post on The HubMob’s 1 Year Anniversary And Some Of It’s More Interesting History And Stats. You'll be amazed: http://blog.hubpages.com/2009/10/hubmob … mment-7951

*sigh* so many good hubs. Darn, we don't have thanksgiving here so I just made a hub on how to say thank you in different languages. Here it is
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Say-Than … uages?done
The hub has been updated: Thanksgiving HubMob
I'm out of town tomorrow, so if any more come in (and we all know they will), I'll move them into the hub on Sunday.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, everyone!
Here's another one for you, Princessa and Shirley - Happy Thanksgiving!

Here is my link:
http://hubpages.com/hub/easy-recipes-fo … anksgiving
I love cooking for Thanksgiving and this was a nice way to organize my recipes.
I got so anxious to do the hub that I didn't answer the question first...does this mean my hub won't be in the rss feed?
Ups! I am so sorry Song-Bird... If you don't start your hub answering the question, the hub does NOT go in the RSS feed
But don't worry, you are here now and you wrote a great hub. I am sure you will be more careful next time; because YES, I hope you come back to join the HubMob again
Sorry I am far too early this week posting the new topic, but better early than late I think
Here you are: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/24068
I don't know about everyone else, but I appreciate the early posting as, with work, I usually don't get to see the new topic until Monday or Tuesday evening. Thanks for the early post. Chuck
This grew to more than I expected and took longer than planned, but here is my Hub on this topic for HubMob this week.
