A Pantyhose Thanksgiving

Here in the USA we're about to begin our holiday season with a celebration of the most American of holidays - Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is, and always has been, my favorite holiday.  I love the simplicity of it.  No giving and receiving of gifts and no commercial build-up, it's just about getting together with family and friends and enjoying a nice meal - our traditional Thanksgiving feast.

Thanksgiving is also a time when we stop to recognize those things we are thankful for, and whether you live in the US or elsewhere in the world, any day is a good day to consider the things for which we are thankful.

One thing I am sincerely thankful for is our community of pantyhose lovers.  I have met so many wonderful people over the years, good people, hard working people, warm, caring people.  Pantyhose lovers to their very core are the kindest, gentlest lot I could ever hope to encounter.  The internet is a different type of social vehicle.  People don't need to be kind or caring or considerate.  When I first started connecting with other pantyhose lovers through the internet I used to find it surprising that they seemed like such nice people.  Over time I came to realize this is the norm for us.  This is a characteristic of people that possess the pantyhose gene, a characteristic of our community.

I am also thankful that many pantyhose lovers within our community choose to spend time with us on Pantyhose Share Club.  It's easy to host a website, easier still to host one for some of the most amazing people on the planet, but it's not so easy to create a culture of acceptance, understanding and tolerance that permeates the web.  We all share in the pantyhose lifestyle, in that respect we are all the same, but we all celebrate this lifestyle in different ways which means that some of us can be very different from one another.  I am forever grateful that this community is able to come together to celebrate our common love for pantyhose while we accept the individual differences that exist between us.

The US tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving descended from our Pilgrim forefathers and religious intolerance was one of the primary reasons our forefathers chose to come to America in the first place.  In a way, we're not so different from those people establishing the original American colonies.  We recognize our pantyhose addiction as different from the norm, hide it from others for fear of being misunderstood, and come together with others sharing this trait to feel accepted and celebrate our common ground.  Yep, we're just like our forefathers but we wear much better looking shoes!

I'm looking forward to sharing more with you soon.
