    Ethnocentric Americans are ignorant of the fact that, by law, Canada celebrates Thanksgiving (in October).

    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!!

    In the northern hemisphere, winter begins on December 21-22, after Thanksgiving.

    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."
    --Joe Beyser

    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).
