Given that I tend not to pay much heed to this copycat Canadian ‘holiday’ I had not realized till a few minutes ago that the always ‘damn cute‘ Canadians observe (‘celebrate’ seems like a joke) their ‘Thanksgiving‘ when the U.S. is celebrating Columbus Day.
Weird … right? Could NOT have been a coincidence — 2nd Monday of October. They could at least have gone for 1st Friday of October.
I don’t know. These Canadians! I guess the 2nd Monday of October is the LAST day of Fall in the ‘upper Tundra’ (as I call it) and the FIRST day of their 7 month winter.
Well, just think about it.
Something has to tell you that it is NOT cricket.
