Hurricane Thanksgiving Day

If you are in the US Virgin Islands on October 25th, be sure to participate in Hurricane Thanksgiving day when everyone celebrates the "end" of hurricane season and hopefully celebrates that they have been "spared" the past season.  (The fourth Monday in July is Hurricane Supplication day where they pray that hurricanes pass them by).

This is such a neat idea.  I think I will use the idea to organize a yearly party for my Condo Community either on Oct. 25 or the fourth Monday in July or even both. I run all the social functions.

You bet and every other tropical combo you can think of ... It is truly a huge celebration if hurricanes missed their area ...

So if a hurricane hits, do they not party, or just slant the reasoning to "We survived so lets party" party lol

If they are still alive on Oct 25, they feel great reason to party ... especially if a hurricane hit! The Virgin Islands are located in such a way that they usually dodge the bullet of the Big Hurricanes ... Hurricane Supplication Day is a more solemn occasion where they simply pray to be spared ..

Its not the hurricane or tropical storms that impact the islands but the AFTERMATH that hurts the most.  It is not an easy trick to remove debris from an island so the damage sits forever.  Tourists often get the wrong impression of an island because it appears "dirty" but in reality, they may still be cleaning up after a storm from a year ago or more.  It's heartbreaking to see how Aruba is still cleaning up from a few years ago!

Sounds like an excellent reason for a celebration!

Here's hoping and cautiously optimistic that many many people will have reason to celebrate on October 25th.

Glomarrone - is the party still on?  Where do we come lol ...
