    Everyday is a holiday somewhere in It's the perfect place to try out all those recipes so come join in with your friends icon_exclaim.gif

    Rules for jumping into the Holiday game:
    1. Find out who is "IT".

    2. Tag one of their recipes that you have not previously reviewed (doesn't matter how many times the recipe has been reviewed by others)

    3. Tagging the same recipe in multiple games is not allowed. But this does not prevent players from using their tags for the Photo Forum or special events in other forums.

    4. Make & review that recipe within two weeks from the date of your tag. When you chose to tag someone’s recipe, you are committing to making that recipe and reviewing it within 2 weeks (14 days). We realize life sometimes does get in the way of our cooking/tagging, so if you aren’t going to be able to meet the 2 week deadline, please ask us for a additional 2 week extension. Players will be put on the Restricted List once they have passed the 4 weeks (28 days) deadline, unless they have special circumstances. If you feel you have a special circumstance preventing you from completing a tag within 4 weeks, please contact the game host. Once on the Restricted List, you will no longer be able to participate in any of the games or events in the “Cooking Games with Friends Forum” until you have made and reviewed any recipes that have you on that list. This is done in order to keep it fair for all players in the games.

    5. Report back to this thread to say you've made the recipe so we can update the "completed"!

    ****To make our job easier, if everyone could follow this posting format, it would be much appreciated icon_biggrin.gif !****

    Canadian Thanksgiving - October 08, 2012

    The history of Thanksgiving in Canada goes back to an English explorer, Martin Frobisher, who had been trying to find a northern passage to the Orient. He did not succeed but he did establish a settlement in Northern America. In the year 1578, he held a formal ceremony, in what is now called Newfoundland, to give thanks for surviving the long journey. This is considered the first Canadian Thanksgiving. Other settlers arrived and continued these ceremonies. He was later knighted and had an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean in northern Canada named after him - Frobisher Bay.

    At the same time, French settlers, having crossed the ocean and arrived in Canada with explorer Samuel de Champlain, also held huge feasts of thanks. They even formed 'The Order of Good Cheer' and gladly shared their food with their Indian neighbours.

    Traditional foods of Turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie.

    October in Australia

    October is midspring in Australia, the flowers are in bloom, the weather is warm, and the sand and surf of Australia's beaches beckon.

    Labour Day in Austraila
    *In New Zealand, Labor Day is a national public holiday marked on the fourth Monday in October.

    *In Australia, Labor Day is a public holiday on the first Monday in October in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and South Australia.

    *Labor Day is on the first Monday in May in Queensland (May Day in the Northern Territory).

    Labour Day, also known as Eight Hours Day in Tasmania and May Day in the Northern Territory, commemorates the granting of the eight-hour working day for Australians. It also recognizes worker's contributions towards the nation's economy. It is an annual public holiday and its date varies across the states and territories.

    What do people do:
    Many people use the Labour Day holiday as part of a long weekend where they can relax, spend time with friends or family members, play or watch sport, have barbecues. Some people plan a getaway trip to a coastal region, the mountains or the countryside where they can engage in various activities such as picnics, wine-tasting at a winery, bush-walking, or camping.

    Throughout the nation, Labour Day is an occasion for unions, community groups and the general public to join in celebration. In Queensland's capital city of Brisbane there are marches are held on or around Labour Day. They are often led by the state's key political leaders and influential key figures. Union members often take part in these marches.

    The first "Oktoberfest" took place on October 12, 1810: For the commemoration of their marriage, Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds) organized a great horse race (the marriage took place on October 12, the horse race on October 17, therefore there are different dates named as being the first Oktoberfest).

    The festival is held on an area named the Theresienwiese (Field [or meadow] of Therese), often called "d' Wiesn" for short.Beer plays a central role in the fair, with every festival beginning with a keg of beer tapped by the Mayor of Munich who declares "O'zapft is!" (Bavarian: "It's tapped!"). A special Oktoberfest beer is brewed for the occasion, which is slightly darker and stronger, in both taste and alcohol.

    Halloween - October 31st

    Halloween (also spelled Hallowe'en) is a holiday celebrated on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saint's Day. It is largely a secular celebration, but some Christians and pagans have expressed strong feelings about its religious overtones. Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America during Ireland's Great Famine of 1846.The day is often associated with the colors orange and black, and is strongly associated with symbols such as the jack-o'-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, pranking people, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies.
