    Happy Turkey Day!

    Happy Thanksgiving to our friends to the North... especially our fearless leader Darin (all while not even owning a Mirage :P ) to whom we owe all of our thanks for this great community.

    Thanks for the thoughts to our American friends to the south. Not sure why we have different thanksgivings. It's not like the harvests are at different times, at least in the northern states.

    Which made me wonder when it's here. So I googled for 'dankdag´, and found this holiday schedule for a particular school:

    dankdag Schouwen-Duiveland woensdag 6 november 2019
    dankdag Tholen woensdag 20 november 2019
    dankdag Bevelanden en Walcheren woensdag 27 november 2019
    dankdag Zeeuws-Vlaanderen donderdag 28 november 2019

    Schouwen-Duiveland, Tholen, Bevelanden and Zeeuws-Vlaanderen are all parts of the Zeeland province, all within 80km of each other.

    I have lots of family in south Holland, zuid holland.

    Lots and lots of Dutch in southern Ontario. There must be 6 or 7 Reformed churches within 25 km's of me.

    Going to church is probably a joke in the Netherlands, like most of Europe. The most religious people there are the Islamist by far Id bet.

    The Turks back in 1529 sieged Vienna, Austria. So it's not that implausible to say North America's early Euro colonists could have easily been spreading a later Gospel to the Natives.

    G'bye New Amsterdam, hello New Constantinople?

    Depends where you are. Where I live (Limburg) I'm only aware of only 1 Reformed church in 25km. But I know at least 3 mosques. My mother in law lives in a small town in Zuid Holland, my wife is raised there. There are at least 4 Reformed churches in that little town (within 3km), and they are all well attended. I'm not aware of any mosque there. There nearest mosque is in Rotterdam, I think.
