: Did anyone ever dress as a beggar on Thanksgiving {as a kid} and go around asking "anything for Thanksgiving?" I did! This was in the 30's and early 40's.

Not in southern West Virginia. I actually don't remember much about Thanksgiving when I was growing up in the 1950s. Big meals with lots of family members -- aunts, uncles, cousins -- were a regular Sunday thing. Maybe that is why.
