Spirit Sentiment #12 - Being Thankful

warning: i'm very angry
Happy Thanksgiving, Jammers!

I'm sure you all spent time with family and had a huge feast, or maybe you did something small.

Hopefully, you thought about what you were thankful for (since people have been badgering you about it for the past few days).

i drew this

Sometimes in Jamaa I see Jammers constantly saying "Oh I wish I was rare" and things like that. It honestly won't change anything to have certain items. (unless you are very narcissistic. Then congrats, you're the queen of i-have-everything-and-you-don't ville.)


not with that attitude you won't





What I am trying to say is that we spend waaaaay too much time talking about what is worth what and criticizing trade requests. Why can't you be thankful for what you already have?

It's always fun to make a goal to have a certain item, but not fret about it. I understand that it may be difficult if you don't have some of the items "worth" for the item you want. but that's why you can work for it by building up your items for others. It's difficult, I know. It takes time.

Being thankful in real life doesn't have to mean that you need a big house or a lot of food in order to be thankful. You should be thankful that you're alive and (hopefully) well, have a roof over your heads, and have a family (even if you don't have a mom or dad. you still have people who love you).

Whether it be friends

or siblings


or chickens


or if you love food.


Be thankful for these big or little things in your life!!

In Animal Jam, be thankful whether you have this item


or this item


Because they're all the same.



Happy Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for bacon and friends and God and family and lots of other stuff that I can't name!!!

    Bravo, bravo! After a recent hack, I feel like it's perfect for Thanksgiving because I have been cleared of rares, and now can be thankful for the little things! :D

    I also have missed my friend, Rikkirik, who I've spent multiple thanksgivings with in a row. This year she moved away, and we keep in touch by Animal Jam and Video Chatting! The day before thanksgiving, we had a bitter sweet virtual thanksgiving.


    Thanksgiving is a virtue, why not have a virtual thanksgiving?

  44. This is a really good sentiment. Every Jammer should be thankful for what they have whether its a spike or a worn or stuff. I wish people would follow this. I am thankful for everything I have and be thankful you have a den and clothing and can play with friends and go on adventures and that your not band from AJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. cant you just eat small children who play aj they are anoying

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ps, rares and betas don't mean that your rich in the real world. They mean nothing. AJHQ should really just make all the rares and betas come back to stop all of this.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I didn't know that was possible, but she should still go for it

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yeah, I would love if headdresses came back before December. I want all the colors.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yeah cuz then I can have a founder!!!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  55. the member top hats or the nm ones?

    ReplyDelete
  56. That's fine, keep it. I'm over those things. I could just get a top hat from the Trading Party claw. I honestly think the nm ones look better.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ooooooo yeah I loooove headresses

    ReplyDelete
  58. i want bow and arrows by the last day of my school which is the 12th of december

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi. c: About people saying "I'll never get a (type of item)" The beats and rares never will be the point of the game. Players should be thankful that they get to play AJ which is meant for friendship. :D

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think those were specifically meant for the beta testers, but yeah

    ReplyDelete
  61. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isnM7LFt6PA

    ReplyDelete
  63. Totally right there -whispers to someone- hey at least someone has some sence

    ReplyDelete
  64. Do you mean fancy top hat or top hat. Oh okay. nevermind

    ReplyDelete
  65. No. You meant beets. Beets are rarer

    ReplyDelete
  66. That would be more believable if they didn't make a new rare every. Single. Monday.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  78. I heard about those. I think it's like those staffs in the Hot Cocoa Hut or the second story of the Chamber of Knowledge but it's a back item. I can't find a real picture or a video with proof, so I'm just gonna say that it was a hoax.

    ReplyDelete
  79. apparently wootmoo had it, but idk

    ReplyDelete
  80. Necklaces ARE beta and I am not joking around. They were available in Beta Days, so they ARE beta. Just because they are sold, it doesn't change anything! Poor Necklaces.... always getting teased... *hugs them*

    ReplyDelete
  81. I think turkey hats are underestimated. They have a rare guys! I have like, 20 rare turkey hats! They are meh babies!

    ReplyDelete
  87. A rare spiked collar for a rare necklace, seems legit.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I get what you mean. I don't like christmas until thanksgiving is over.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Rare Turkey Hat for a Rare Bow.
    Sounds fair to me.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I had bio problems like you, until i fixed it to the knee. (Anyone get that reference?)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Yesss
    The scamz
    Dey takin over tonight!
    Anyone get the reference?

    ReplyDelete
  99. It really just depends on what the other person wants. It's only fair if both people are happy with the end result. If someone wants a turkey hat instead of a bow, that's fine. But you can't force someone to accept a trade just because it's fair.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm thankful for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (that is good) and what you said was very inspirational Snowyclaw, good job and it is so true! :)
