Thanksgiving is primarily an American and Canadian thing, it's not something we celebrate in this country (UK). I respect it though and I respect what it originally stood for. I don't really know what else I can say about it.

I enjoy getting together on Thanksgiving..well normally its just me, my mom, brother, and sister, but still, family time! I'm quite glad I'm not working. Even though we won't be cooking this year, going to a buffet, so at least I will be able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner out with my family. Next year hopefully we can cook, then I can make some vegan dishes to share! We most likely will be donating some food this year again as well. Give what you can to help others, right? :)

Me  too.  And I make sure the neighborhood stray cats and my own dog from a rescue organization get some turkey.  It just feels good to acknowledge that being able to share is a luxury and a privilege for the giver as well as the recipient.
Though the tie-in is tenuous I'm also grateful for the religious freedom, such as it is, that we have.

I love Thanksgiving also.  I love to cook and share that with others.  It also starts a favorite time of year when folks seem to show a gentler side to themselves.  The grumpy guy in the market is seen buying a food bag for needy families and folks come together to help each other out.  It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy...

As a Wiccan, Thanksgiving is one holiday I can share with others regardless of their beliefs and REALLY feel good about.  Though there are religious overtones for some, I think about how lucky my husband and I are to have enough to be comfortable, and enough left over to share. Though Wicca isn't what the pilgrims had in mind(!), still their struggle to freely practice religion resonates with me.  The generosity of the Native Americans who helped them survive should also be honored at this time IMHO.

For Americans on this site, how do you feel about this holiday? How do others who are not Americans see Thanksgiving?

Lonan , are you just looking for a simple circle casting ( a like in introducing yourself to your God/dess ) or do you want one for a special purpose ?.

Have you cleansed and purified all your tools ?.

Augadelume , yes and know, you are correct in that lucid dreaming is having the dream as if you are fully awake and that you are totally aware , sight , sound , taste smell . The dream itself is not controlled by you . What you are think about is Guided Dreaming that is somewhat harder . It is when you start the dream while you are still awake and continue it though sleep until waking .

There are a several books that can be a good resource.  The Truth About Witchcraft by Scott Cunningham and When Someone You Love is Wiccan by Carl McColman are good starting points in helping to know how to explain your beliefs.

That is never an easy one. As C_A says, only you can judge the level of trust and/or commitment in your relationship. Is he open minded enough to be able to handle it? will he be able to accept your path in his relationship with you?

The other side of it is, if you decide he wouldn't be able to accept it, could you continue to follow your path secretly? The decision is yours, only you can decide if, or how you tell him.

Honesty is always the better policy, openness, and trust. The outcome is a gamble of course.
