Thanks for the "Happy Thanksgiving", although we don´t celebrate it in Germany.

Jan.

PS: I would pick a Radeon 9800, but that wish won´t come true :-(

Yes, but not every country dedicates an annual public holiday in praise of them.
I'm also not in favour of people here in the UK celebrating (and re-enacting) the execution of a catholic 'terrorist', but there you go.
Just stuff yourself with turkey and try and forget about the details of what you're giving thanks for.

Oh that's not true. It's called Erntedankfest.

And I'm sure every culture has something like Thanksgiving. Basically you thank your whatever supernatural entity you have for the crops this summer.

Err, no that's not what thanks giving in the good old US of A is about mate - nout to do with crops, for sure. Unless you consider native americans as crops...?
We'd be giving thanks for d-day if things had gone the other way - thank you to Adolf, our founding father.

Hmmm.... my dictionary says, Thanksgiving = Erntedankfest. This seems to be a false friend though, because different instantations of harvest celebrations are out there, as explained here:

Not sure who to address if I was to thank the founder of my country. Perhaps Carlemagne of 800 A.D. ?
