I try to read most of the post daily. I have seen a bunch of references to thanksgiving and some people having to get a turkey for next week. Is there a different meaning here i am not getting. A family is celebrating thanksgiving meal this weekend. since my traditional thanksgiving was always like the 24th of NOV. is this like thanksgiving as different meaning. A big meal with the family, am i missing a chance to pig out. heaven forbid. a change to gobble up some turkey and dressing..

It's a statutory holiday in Ontario.

edit: Just looked it up, it is a stat holiday everywhere except Atlantic Canada. Although I don't ever remember having to work it when I was living in NS.

Being unaware and finding out is nothing to be ashamed of! Good for you for asking, and I'm sure you were not the only one who didn't know.

I always think it is kind of fun to find out about holidays from other places and/or cultures. Sometimes I even adopt them, but it is too hot here at this time of year to want to eat a heavy meal, so I'll just be happy that my friends up north are celebrating.

Trust me, it was too hot here, too. Humidex was 35ºC (95ºF), cooking a turkey was not fun.
Well it wasn't hot here. On sunday it was stormy, windy and wet. That was Turkey day at in-laws. We were worried we would lose power! Monday was cool and Sunny. Turkey day for my family at my home.

Oh where, oh where is our Indian Summer????????:pilgrim:
