Happy Thanksgiving to the Americans in the house. Those of us cool Canadians had ours like a month and a half ago. :lol:

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!

Personally, I see no reason not to celebrate both Thanksgivings. ;)

No turkey for me (vegetarian), but lots of delicious mashed potatoes, rolls, green bean casserole, and pies.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!

Once again, I am thankful for not needing a special day to be thankful about things.

Or stuff myself with delicious poultry, for that matter.

Most holidays in Canada are excuses for things. Thanksgiving is an excuse to do fancy dinner and eat delicious poultry. It's not that we wouldn't, but, well, who thinks "I want to make a whole turkey dinner for.. tuesday." The feeling of specialness gives us an excuse to do something awesome.

We've also got a holiday in Ontario called "Civic Holiday." It's literally the "We didn't have a long weekend in the month of August, so we created a holiday" excuse.

I'm not eating turkey every day, mind you. In fact, I can't even remember the last time I ate it. Or whether or not I liked it, for that matter. It's just that if I wanted to, I wouldn't have to wait until a special day to do so.

On a similar vein, whenever I hear someone say that 'New Year's Eve is just an excuse to get completely smashed', two questions pop into my head: the first is 'why would anyone want to get completely smashed, ever?' (it's one of the universe's great mysteries), and the second is 'if you really want to, why the fuck would you need an excuse?'
