Happy Thanksgiving to Fellow Canadians!

October 13, 2008

One of the many blessings of being dual citizens in being thankful twice a year on Thanksgiving!  Yes, the second Monday in October is Canadian Thanksgiving and is celebrated much like here in the States…. even with football.  The turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie are not always eaten on the Monday, but can be consumed (followed by turkey-stuffed comas on the couch) on Saturday, Sunday or Monday.  We Americans are a bit picky about our hallowed Thursday for Turkey and the such.

We have much to be thankful for: our loving God, our family far and near, our home, our health, our church family and most of the members of my family would add hockey to that sentimental list.  So to the Canadians in the crowd, Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the holiday and be thankful. :o).  If you need a movie suggestion, I’d recommend The Ultimate Gift.  There is even a touching Thanksgiving scene to bring us all back to reality.  It is a MUST WATCH!

I think we’ll have some turkey dogs to celebrate with our countymen.  Here Here!
