    Thank you :) not to much for me. Going in for surgery in a few hours so I'll be home sleeping and recovering.

    You all eat some delicious food!

    Happy Turkey Day! LOL, I was actually going to start a post of the same thing :P.

    I have 2 dinners, one Sunday and one Monday.. I am going to be so full. The one Sunday is at my bf house, I somehow managed to get volunteered to make a cheesecake, so now I have to figure out how to make one... And Monday is at my aunts house.

    Gosh I hate sounding like the totally thick one, but why do you have Thanks giving? Is it like Christmas? Do you still have Christmas also? I've always wondered this, but never had the nerve to ask.....

    Hope you don't mind me asking.

    LOL, thanksgiving is celebrated because way back when the pilgrims first came the native Indians helped them by giving them food when fall came because most of the crops were done. Then they all sat down and had dinner together (at least.. that's what I think it is). Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 2nd full weekend in October, and we always get the Monday off. No presents, just lots of food! And yes, we still have Christmas. My family also has a tradition where we all go around the table and say something we are thankful for.

    Im pretty sure the basis is the same, a lot of American families came to Canada during the American Revolution, so they brought the holiday with them. But of course, ours is better because its celebrated over a weekend

    We actually celebrate on the 4th Thursday of November every year (date changes)

    The Friday following is like our biggest shopping day of the year; everyone goes out to the stores early to get good deals on Christmas presents :), so although we technically celebrate it only on Thursday, it's a very shortened work week for most of us
