Double Thanksgiving with Ideas from Goopy's Story

Goopy is on the trail to a double Thanksgiving.

The Goopy Ghost at Thanksgiving

Goopy saw the water rising
and thought, I should be enterprising.
I'll do my best to help my host.
Oh yes, Goopy is a kindly ghost.

Double Thanksgiving Haunts

Thanksgiving celebrates the harvests of the past year with group meals. Participants often celebrate at more than one location.

Splitting time is common. Innovative plans thrive with teamwork and diversity. Cramped isolation may be harmful and unhealthy.

Group meals help to double Thanksgiving.
Pumpkin is a Thanksgiving fruit of the vine.

To offer entertainment, spark conversation and meet attendance goals, ghosts may invite themselves. Someone else may not arrive.
