Rangoli: paDikOlam - 23 - Thanksgivingday paDikOlam
Created by jkmrao on 2009-11-26,

In the North America, Thanksgiving Day is observed as a harvest festival, somewhat akin to the sankrAnti or pongal in India. It is the day when the families gather and offer their thanks to the almighty God and all others for what we are and how we are. In the US it is observed on the last Thursday of November. Infact, the Christmas season starts the very next day, the so-called black Friday. This is perhaps the busiest travel period in the country. Thanksgiving day is a great day, except for the millions of turkeys Wink Here is a paDikOlam made especially for the Thanksgiving day with cornucopia and fruit baskets, hollies, poinsettias and tendrils.

Rangoli: Happy Thanksgiving! rangoli
Created by Lata on 2009-11-26,

We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is a time to recognize that God has given us many things to be thankful for, each passing day. The things that we are most thankful for: Love, Family, Health, Friendship --- all of you!! Smile

This rangoli is based on a 6x6 dot grid. I have made use of the horn-shaped wicker basket called cornucopia to make this rangoli. These baskets are filled with various kinds of vegetables and fruits harvested in the fall season, in North America. The cornucopia is also known as the Horn of Plenty, or the Harvest cone, and is a symbol of abundance.
