First FMF Prompt of 2015 - WELCOME


Belcome. That's what I tweeted to someone who thanked me for wishing her for her birthday. And, a little while later, I found out that this was the prompt at today's Five Minute Friday Party.

I started thinking, why does one reply with the word welcome, when someone thanks us? Does it mean, they're welcome to thank us again? I'm not sure how this thing started.

Well, this word is also written on the doors in many homes. But, strange thing is they keep the doors shut and put this word on it. Does it not look strange to you? Maybe if they kept it open and then wrote it, the thieves would think they're welcome to enter the house at any time.

Oh, well, it's already five minutes and that's all I could write today. Will write more, next time. Thanks for reading.

  4. Hmm - I have never thought of that -or wondered how the whole "Thank You/You're Welcome" thing got started, but now I am curious! Glad you jumped in and joined us for Five Minute Friday! It's so good to be back!

    1. Hi Karrilee,

      Thanks for commenting.

      That could become something to research on, and homework for me, as well as content for another blog post, if I get some time to write. :-)

  5. Your post and photo made me laugh and that is always welcoming!!
