Good on em. Them Canadians have a lot to be thankful for. They get to be our neighbors all year round.
I see nothing wrong with them condensing their thanks into one day in October. Here Here!!
Contrary to the original post, Thanksgiving is *not* a holiday *unique* to the USA.
"They [Canadians] get to be our [American] neighbors all year around."
So are the Mexicans.
"Poor Mexico! So far from God, so close to the United States."
--Porfirio Diaz (1830-1915, president of Mexico)
Some proud Canadians like to claim that they were the first nation (albeit a part of the
British Empire) to defeat the USA in a war. This refers to the War of 1812, during which
the US attempt to invade and conquer Canada failed. How many Americans remember Laura Secord?
My point is that the USA has invaded most of its neighbors, mainly Canada and Mexico
and also many countries in the Caribbean or Central America (including Grenada and Panama).
