Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends

Well, today is Thanksgiving in Canada, and since the great white north provides plenty of beautiful young girls for us to feast our eyes upon, I thought I'd send out a happy day in their honour. Of course, I also happen to be Canadian, and my weekend has basically consisted of family get together's and elbowing my way through supermarkets to find a beast to roast later today. I had hoped to do something a bit different this year, like King Crab or Prime Rib roast, but it appears everyone had that same idea. After supermarket number three, and unable to find what I wanted, I caved in and bought turkey and all the fixings.

Why Canada doesn't celebrate at the same time the United states is beyond my comprehension, and to tell the truth, I'm not exactly sure why Canada celebrates it in the first place since I'm only familiar with the history of Plymouth, the first settlers and the Native harvest.

The way I see it is that Canada celebrates in October for two reasons. The first is the Canadian need to be "different". Being inundated by American culture is not easy, so I suspect some bright government official decided that we should copy our neighbours to the south in celebrating one of their traditions, and yet keep ourselves unique by celebrating it "before" them so that it at least that we came up with the idea first. This could also be an indication that Canadian culture has a 'me first' attitude, but that's a whole different hockey game (which I'm sure, many are happy to note that Canada actually has a hockey league this year).

Personally, I think it's a wise idea to have Thanksgiving so far away from the December holidays, and as I sit here staring at this huge mother of a turkey, knowing that we will be eating it right into next month, I can't say I envy our American cousins having one turkey holiday so close to another. In my family that would mean a three-month leftover affair with no break in between, and a sure-fire way of never wanting to see another huge breast again, and hell, we can't have that!
