Dear Canada...

Discussion in 'Спам Oстров' started by Gold Dullahan, Nov 27, 2014.

  1. (In which we question Canada's ridiculous fabulous-ness)
    Why you have Hipster October-Thanksgiving?
  2. Yeah! Does your Thanksgiving also include Native American genocide or nah?
  3. moon I'm sorry but this is going to bug me like all hell if I don't point it out- "Canadians" should not have an apostrophe
  4. (I was gonna' go up to fix it but I don't see "Canadian's" anywhere??? EDIT: nevermind, you meant my siggy...)
    Does your thanksgiving involve people yelling at a TV showing people running with an oval-shaped ball of doom and tripping over each other?
  5. Short answer, politics.  The government wanted to win points with Canadians by creating another statutory holiday. 
    Feasts have always been a celebratory thing in all nations and cultures, Canada's Thanksgiving is closely tied to European harvest festivals which took place in October.

    Not really, we don't have a pilgrim story or anything.  Basically the first 'thanksgiving' (it was a mass in England) was to celebrate Martin Frobisher's miraculous return from a disastrous trip in Nunavut.  (Speaking of Frobisher check out the song Frozen in Frobisher Bay.)
    According to the government Thanksgiving is, "A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed..."

    As far as I know it is not traditional for people to watch football during Thanksgiving in Canada.  
    You can drink to excess where I live though.
  6. I bet @Eebit is fun on this day
  7. Mom-Bit: Eebit you're 7 get away from the bottles. *slaps wrist*
