    Happy Thanksgiving Canada

    Although I think we only have Ian and VG on here
    Also,I find Canadians really don't make a fuss over holidays.

    Well, I was commandeered by the Thais to cook a Thanksgiving dinner
    So you have an American cooking for about 8 Thais for Canadian Thanksgiving 555

    It's the US......do you really think anyone there would know it is a Canadian holiday? 555

    Plus Canadians are very weird about holidays. They barely care about them. They all have different days that they get together
    Some will do it Saturday, tonight or tomorrow.

    I am a big time holiday guy, so their attitude is very opposite mine

    Yes it is......but that is not a bank holiday so a lot of people work

    Actually in this ridiculous PC world, Seattle changed the name of Columbus Day to Natives Celebration Day or something

    Thanks giving in Canada? Doesn't make sense. They didn't have the whole sit down, make peace with the indians thing(or did they?). So where does the Canadian tradition stem from?
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    They gave out disesed ridden blankets to the natives to kill them off.......so hence we celebrate 555
    No need for a sit down

    So this is pretty funny:

    This Thanksgiving dinner wasn't my idea but I love company so was happy to do it.
    The Thais actually asked Ao if maybe I could cook them Turkey 555
    Again, my pleasure
    With 2 Thai chefs the plan was for them to cook some Thai appertizers and then we'd have the full Turkey dinner
    Well they were late and the food I had been preparing for 5 hours was ready

    It looked like the Thais were pre-occupied with making their Thai meal and the food I just cooked for 5 hours was going to go to waste!!
    I didn't show it but I was mighty pissed off.
    Well we put my dinner out and all the sides and they all tucked into it for a good hour or so.....basically cleaned out everything!!

    For a minute there I though I'd be on here ranting about the ungrateful bastards 555

    Of course they went for round 4 of about 5 Thai dishes, they were still going strong when I went to bed.

    Have to admit I don't know anything really about Thanksgiving apart from that Joey (Friends) once got a turkey stuck on his head , so had a quick look on the internet.

    "Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l'Action de grāce in Canadian French) is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, and has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well".

    Many villages & small towns in the UK do have low-key harvest festivals, but it has never developed into a national holiday/celebration, like it has in North America.

    When the Thais asked me why we had Thanksgiving, I told them this month is when Canada celebrates killing their Indians and we will celebrate killing our Indians next month 555
