Thanksgiving

In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October. The first formal Canadian Thanksgiving was held in the late 1500s. An English explorer named Martin Frobisher, after unsuccessfully attempting to find a northern passage to the Orient, established a settlement in Northern America and celebrated a harvest feast. This is considered the first Canadian Thanksgiving.

Americans give thanks on the fourth Thursday of November. The first recorded American Thanksgiving took place in 1621, to commemorate the Pilgrims’ first successful harvest in the New World. It was shared with the Indian tribes of the New World, who had played a major role in the Pilgrims’ survival. The custom of an annually celebrated thanksgiving, held after the harvest, continued through the years. During the American Revolution (late 1770s) a day of national thanksgiving was suggested by the Continental Congress and in 1817 New York State adopted Thanksgiving Day as an annual custom.

Sahl Hasheesh Multi-Billion Dollar Project Launched

Egyptian Resorts Company (ERC) has launched a multi-billion dollar project aimed at attracting investment in residential, commercial, tourism and entertainment projects in a large development spanning 32 million square metres.

Located on the Red Sea area of Sahl Hasheesh, the development is being executed in three phases and, once completed, it will become a unique tourism destination with a satellite beachfront town with specially-designed hotels, shopping boulevards, a marina, villas and recreational facilities. The project is one hour flying time away from Cairo.

One of the unique features of the project is the recreation of an underwater town full of pharaonic-style architecture and statues. The project will recreate the pharaonic-age ambience in the area.

Investment in the area includes $125 million in infrastructure, $455 million in hotels, and $50 million in a golf course.

Construction of Phase I involving 6,000 square metres of area is in full swing and some parts of the first phase will be ready for occupancy by September 2004. The entire Phase I will be completed by 2007 when the Phase II project will be launched.

Fancy Dress Ideas

Shark
Cut triangles from white cardboard and tape them inside the hood of a grey sweatshirt. Cut out a fin shape and in the center of the fin's base cut a one-inch vertical slit. Fold one side out to the right and the other side out to the left. Secure each side to the back of the sweatshirt using safety pins
Spider
To create the legs, take three pairs of black tights and fill each leg with rolled-up pairs of socks. Tie black thread between the first and second balls that you put into each spider leg. Leave enough thread to tie around your wrists so you can raise and lower the legs. Pin or sew the open ends of the tights to the back of a black shirt and wear black pants. Cut an hourglass shape from red fabric and pin it to the front of the shirt. To make a skullcap, cut one of the feet off a pair of black tights.
Middle of the Road
Dress in black pants and a black shirt. Run two strips of yellow electrical tape down the center of your body, from your neck to your feet, to create two parallel lines.
