    Happy Thanksgiving Canadians!

    I hope you're having a great day with family and friends.
    It sure is a fine one on the east coast.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians.
    I am sitting in Emergency at hospital with my son. He has a serious infection that appears to have started with a ruby injury a week ago at University and he brought it home with him. How do u get through to a male when they think they invincible and dont treat injuries when they happen.
    Sorry but i have little time for stupid today.

    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating. Can we non-Canucks celebrate as well?

    Of course you can. This Thanksgiving is called "Harvest Thanksgiving" in Britain, and is a revival of ancient harvest festivals, that took place in England in the early 19th century. It was introduced by a Church of England priest, but is a non-liturgical holiday. So, it has nothing to do with Pilgrim Fathers, so everyone can have Harvest Thanksgiving, and still stuff themselves silly on American Thanksgiving, and go mad shopping on Black Friday.

    I ate myself to a standsstill yesterday, but have recovered nicely, except that I couldn't even look at a plate of leftover TG food today. Oh, the two kids that live close enough, and their partners, came by and the boys took me for a game of golf. All in all, a good day.

    Thanks for all the good wishes.
