updating early cause i've got a lot to do tonight >_<
this is one of those pages that i really liked on paper but as soon as i scanned it in i went "...ehh". ah well. i like next week's page better.

silent readers! i enjoyed hearing about what you dressed up as for halloween. so now i want to know whether you celebrate thanksgiving or not, and how. i live in the UK so it's pretty irrelevant to me, but i once celebrated thanksgiving with some american friends. all i remember is that my friend's mom cooked amazing pumpkin pie. but i've never liked another pumpkin pie since then...

@Nonesocoldasi: thank you so much! <3
@VoiceOfSociety: probably, probably...

I celebrate Thanksgiving, and it's definitely one of my favorite holidays. I'm a food addict, so eating foods I don't eat any other time of the year is heaven. Flaky bread rolls smothered in potatoes, gravy and turkey with some peas tossed in? Ugh, the best sandwich ever <3

Whelp now I'm hungry.

November 17th, 2011, 1:13 pm

Ahaha, Lumi, so blunt.

November 17th, 2011, 1:17 pm

I kind of celebrate Thanksgiving? I live far away from my family (they live two states away from me). I just live with my dad but we cook a turkey and have mashed potatoes and gravy and usually some kind of dessert. If I happen to be visiting my family for it they always have a huge meal for it with three different kinds of pies even though it's only for 7-9 people.

November 17th, 2011, 1:18 pm

Sisu's design is totally inspired! he's gorgeous ^^

November 17th, 2011, 1:36 pm

Why's Lumi's hair long?

I celebrate Thanksgiving as a holiday of food and family, but the origins to the holiday taught in American schools are disgustingly biased in favor of the European colonists. I've readied myself to tell any offspring I might end up with the true story of Thanksgiving, and the genocide which occurred after that one friendly banquet.

November 17th, 2011, 1:42 pm

oh Lumi, you and your sexy bed hair :D

November 17th, 2011, 1:48 pm

I wore giant butterfly wings and went to a zoo on Halloween! I saw my first snow leopard, I was happy.

And Thanksgiving is a big deal at my house. My mom cooks the bestest meal and oftentimes family comes over from far away. Last year I made the pumpkin pies with my mom's recipe...hard to beat a mom's recipe... :)

We all kinda ignore the original idea of Thanksgiving though, since "European ancestors horribly mistreated/slaughtered the natives" is not something we're really proud of as Americans ._.

November 17th, 2011, 2:00 pm

My FAMILY celebrates Thanksgiving. I, on the other hand, don't see the point. While there's a few vegetarians in the family, I've never eaten meat myself so the smell of it makes me pretty nauseous. And I like health food so seeing all that food in one spot, and people just eating too much of it.. also makes me feel slightly nauseous.
I don't even like pie.

November 17th, 2011, 2:22 pm

Yes Lumi I'm asking myself the same about the nose XD and lol poor smelly Sindri!

November 17th, 2011, 2:30 pm

Ugh YES, THANK YOU. I've been dying to know about the noses. Oh Lumi, thank god you have no social manners.

And my family always celebrates Thanksgiving. We never have a huge party, but we have a few close friends over and we cook all day and then eat Thanksgiving leftovers for weeks afterwards. XD

November 17th, 2011, 2:51 pm

Bwaha, Sisu. For some reason the way he walks when he's trying to talk to Lumi amuses/entertains me. I think it's the way he's lifting his chin. It reminds me of Simo, actually.

At my house, Thanksgiving is all about food. Home raised turkey, pumpkin pie with homegrown pumpkins, stuffing, cranberry sauce, apple pie... the usual Thanksgiving works. We don't give thanks or anything, and we generally only have family friends over, if we have anyone at all. This year were having -gasp- one relative, and one family of three up. We also don't tend to eat anything until four or five, because we'd get in the way.

November 17th, 2011, 4:07 pm

My Thanksgiving is about family and food, I guess. Unfortunately for me, I'm not a big fan of most of the traditional Thanksgiving foods, but I like the time with my family!

November 17th, 2011, 4:25 pm

Don't be silly, it's a beautiful page~ (As always. c; )

Haha. I was wondering why his nose was missing. X3

November 17th, 2011, 4:48 pm

I love Thanksgiving XD So much yummy food, it's a good holiday for hanging out with family and friends!

Also, I love Sisu ^^ Kinda wish Lumi would warm up to him

November 17th, 2011, 4:54 pm

Awesome page! :D

I also celebrate Thanksgiving (Although I'm Greek ha ha) What we do is over cook a bunch of food. Which includes two turkeys. Yup.

November 17th, 2011, 5:02 pm

whats the deal with noses?

is it like a northern european/something legend that evil entities dont have noses? Or is that a characteristic you chose? Whichever one it is, why? i am most curious. :3

November 17th, 2011, 5:35 pm

Well I used to have a Family Reunion on my Mom's side for Thanksgiving with easily 50 people, tons of food, and a ginormous Bingo game with prizes.

But for the last few years we've been going to my Grandparents in Oregon or having people come to our house.

And this year, I'm at college and I'm not getting to go back. So I'll just spend it here with the apartment to myself while my roomies go to Thanksgiving with family.

November 17th, 2011, 6:31 pm

Aw, Sisu is so cute calling her "little sister" hahaha.

As for Thanksgiving, it can be a pretty be big thing in my family, since my mom has seven siblings, so I have about a billion relatives. Those years when we visit that side of the family are like big potlucks, so it's fun. On the other side of the family, Thanksgiving is small but cozier dinner table sort of thing. No matter what though, I always like to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving parade on tv if I can.

As for food, last year we made a champagne basted turkey, homemade stuffing, bread rolls, and lots of pies like apple, french silk, and pumpkin (which is my favorite). But my favorite unique sort of foods for Thanksgiving are lefse and noodles. Lefse is the best when you put butter and sugar on it, and the noodles go on mashed potatoes instead of gravy. SO GOOD. And now I'm hungry.

November 17th, 2011, 7:15 pm

I looooove Sisu ;3;
His shoes are amazing and he's pretty suave it seems.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia. I've had turkey once in my life, and I didn't care for it. I'm kind of jealous of others who do celebrate it, but seeing as I'm a fussy eater, it doesn't really bother me. We have our big family get-together on Christmas.

November 17th, 2011, 7:37 pm

For a page that makes you go "eh", I really like the design for Sisu you've presented.

November 17th, 2011, 7:39 pm

"Where's Your Nose?"

Lumi, this is probably why you have no friends.

November 17th, 2011, 7:46 pm

Gaaah I can't concentrate on the comic, too busy admiring Sisu's style. <3 It is true that he looks like his brothers here, specially Simo.
He is so cute!! Be nice Lumi! >8U
And Suul! I was hoping you'd speak already! D:

During Thanksgiving, we mostly make Dominican food, which is practically what we do everytime there's a holiday. XD Sometimes we experiment on what food we bring but it's mostly the same. No pumpkin pies, or any pie at all though, if we want dessert we make Flans or sweets.

November 17th, 2011, 10:36 pm

Thanksgiving!!

My family usually has a quiet Thanksgiving, but even if it's just the four of us we're always dressed up and the house is cleaned and there's turkey and squash and mashed potatoes with gravy and cranberries and pie. We also always make orange jello mixed with ice cream, and it's delicious. We tend to invite visiting people from my college over to my house, these past few years, if they can't get home for thanksgiving. Because Thanksgiving in a dorm is laaaaame

November 17th, 2011, 11:29 pm

Wonderful new page! I want to know where his nose went, too. xD

I do celebrate Thanksgiving, though not so much this year. I have to work on that day, so I won't be seeing family until a later date. Pumpkin pie is amazing! *o*

November 17th, 2011, 11:37 pm

thanksgiving

Is the best! My husband and i live away from our families so we host the "homeless" thanksgiving. we cook a turkey and i make pies and cake (pumpkin, cranberry, apple) and people without relatives come over all day and bring food and we snack and hangout. its wonderful.

Also this page just makes me want to know more...

November 18th, 2011, 1:04 am

What is happening in the first panel? Is he pulling something out of his pocket? All those pretty designs are making it hard for me to tell what's what *~* It's a beautiful page though! I like that it's hard to tell whether Sisu is being nice or subtly threatening.

I celebrate thanksgiving too. Lately we've been smoking our turkey ourselves, and then we make oyster stuffing (my favorite, aughh) and mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and cherry pie etc etc. There's always way too much food for just four people hhaha

November 18th, 2011, 6:01 am

I'm Canadian, so our Thanksgiving was a month ago :) My family doesn't really get together for it, but me and my bf go to his parents house for turkey dinner. It's also an excuse for a statutory holiday, so we get a long weekend.

November 18th, 2011, 3:07 pm

I live in Canada, so I've already had Thanksgiving.

Halloween (though it was a while ago) was pretty awesome. I dressed up as Lumi, but unfortunately not many people knew.

November 18th, 2011, 5:26 pm

OMG THANKSGIVING?!?

Yes thanksgiving :3 We are already preparing the plethora of food for all 121 (and one half for the infant) of my more immediate relations. Gotta love the homemade pies. And the mashed potatoes. Mmm..... mashed potatoes XD

November 19th, 2011, 4:23 pm

My family gets together for halloween sometimes, granted that I have to be with my dad for that to happen but it's pretty average I guess. I usually try to stick it out in a dark corner away from all the noise though. We have a big family... over 50 people on my dad's side alone.
Yea
But we have authentic Ukrainian food because my grandpa was Ukrainian (he died unfortunately, just last year too), but my grandma cooks great Ukrainian food and Polish, everything is from scratch so it tastes really really awesome and delicious.

November 19th, 2011, 8:51 pm

I celebrate Thanksgiving! I used to alternate which parents I spent the holiday with each year (my parents have been divorced since I was five); now I get to drive around to four different celebrations each year, as my husband also has divorced parents and we're expected to make an appearance. We usually stick to the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, and sweet potatoes. My mom also winds up making five different desserts, at least two of which are pumpkin-based. I've also got a recipe for a really delicious pumpkin eggnog pie that everyone seems to like.

November 20th, 2011, 1:59 pm

"Where is your nose?" What a welcome! XD Aaah, your character designs are beautiful!

I'm British also, so no thanksgiving ... though St Andrews day falls not long afterwards, and we celebrate that ...

November 21st, 2011, 3:56 am

Firstly, I love this comic. It's rare to see a good witch comic and as a wiccan, I greatly approve.

Secondly, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and this year I am throwing my first (after) Thanksgiving Feast. I'm cooking a turkey for the first time (with roasted veggies), garlic mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, homemade cranberry sauce, sausage stuffing, cornbread, pumpkin pie, and pecan pie. I've invited close friends and family over and am so excited. I have so much to be thankful for and am happy to be celebrating the holiday with y loved ones.

November 21st, 2011, 10:40 am

Haha :'D Nose jokes!

November 21st, 2011, 5:16 pm

I like Sisu. He is the only one of the three who has a decent personality.

January 31st, 2012, 3:19 pm

Where is your nose?
ROFL, that phrase just made my day.

August 25th, 2015, 4:52 am

I thought you were norwegian tbh. Do you speak it fluently or? How did you learn it?
