Double Thanksgiving with Ideas from Goopy's Story
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.
Double Thanksgiving Spirit
To offer entertainment, spark conversation and meet attendance goals, ghosts may invite themselves. Someone else may not arrive.
This often-homeless ghost carries the performance of socially responsible acts to adults and children everywhere.
The Future is Here
Goopy encourages children to learn new things and use their knowledge to benefit their communities.
This ghost sparks a whirlwind of childhood accomplishment that opens doors. Everyone is thankful when one success leads to others.
Double Thanksgiving Efforts

“We can solve it.”
“While you tell the ghost stories,
I'll be the fire.”

making believe he scares you most.”
“It's time for a warning:
For illegal burning,
we are not returning.
Prevention is our thing.”
