- Lady Light, the Rambam is clear on this and in his Hilichot Avodat Kochavim V'Chukkot HaGoyim, in halacha 36 says "Not to follow their customs or manner of dress". So, whereas your reasoning makes sense humanly, with bringing back memories and smells and atmospheres, etc., in a Jewish context it can be labeled as improper. You are a Jewess in this world first and acting it out should and I believe could fill your Jewish soul with such a joy that is incomparable with the physical pleasures of a rich celebratory meal consumed on the last Thursday of the month of November - by the goyim. Let me here report on the meanings of the names of the goy day and month, with the declared intent to further distance you from their disgusting habits and customs: The right hand man of the supreme god Odin, in Norse mythology, is Thor. He was known as the thunder god, and was responsible for the great thunder and lightning which he created with his mighty hammer. In addition to the atmospherical creations, he also was the god of war and destruction; things that the Anglo Saxons held as grand reasons to live and breathe. Thor's feast day was called aptly: Thor's day. The Anglo-Saxon tongue quickly changed this to Thur's day or Thursday. November is the 11th month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian [xtian] calendars and November was the ninth month of the ancient Roman calendar. November retained its name (from the Latin novem meaning "nine") when January and February were added to the Roman calendar (From voices.yahoo.com and Wikipedia respectively). So, to sum it all up, I'd take extra care not even to appear in Hashem's eyes as someone who might have anything to do with these disgusting customs of the idol worshipping of the historic enemies of the Jews.
