List it Tuesday 11/30 - celebrating the harvest

I love lists, so when I saw Aimee's weekly blog series List It Tuesday on artsyville, I was excited. 

"anyone want to play along?  i'd love the company.  scribble a list on an index card, create a list in your art journal, write a list on the back of a receipt." 

I was thinking of lists as I blogged along over the long Thanksgiving weekend.  And noticed all the people recording their blessings.  But then, just who celebrates this holiday?  Here's a list of countries, that celebrate Thanksgiving, duly noted in my sketchbook project journal.

Great list! I have a friend who's Canadian, so I knew they celebrated giving thanks for the harvest, but I had no idea about the others. Really interesting!
