Happy thanksgiving!

Recommended Posts

I dunno if this is appropriate or allowed.  But happy thanksgiving from the southern US.

What we in Canada call Thanksgiving is what Americans call Columbus Day.

What Americans call Thanksgiving is what we in Canada call "Thursday". :)

But Happy Thanksgiving to you. :)

Dear moderateamericain,

Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Interestingly, Thanksgiving Day in the US was moved in 1938 to extend Christmas shopping hours. From "The People's Chronology", By James Trager (1992) pg 859

"Thanksgiving Day is celebrated November 23-the fourth Thursday in the month rather than the last. Federated Department Stores chief Fred Lazarus. Jr, has persuaded President Roosevelt that a longer Christmas shopping season will help the economy, the president has issued a proclamation, and within a few years most states will pass laws making November's fourth Thursday Thanksgiving Day"

Maybe what moderate american really meant was 'Happy thanks giving those Liberals the boot.'

Harper 'all the way.'

Happy Thanksgiving to all Americans who write on this board and all Canadians who have any American roots.
