in reply to Best part of Thanksgiving

I went for the turkey (always go for turkey - mmm!) but I would have picked "the fact that I'm Canadian and therefore celebrate Thanksgiving a month earlier when you can still play golf up here", or something to that effect.

At the risk of flaunting my ignorance, are there any other countries that have Thanksgiving?

... and re:this delightful contribution, I thought every day was Monk Day!

    Yep, I'm Canadian too...
    I'm getting ready for Christmas, not Thanksgiving...

    Yumm... How I wish Canada had two Thanksgivings! I want to be thankful for more food! Yum!

    I don't think so. I mean, the US is giving thanks that the Indians decided not to let the Pilgrims (freeze|starve)+ to death. Dunno how many other countries would want to celebrate *that*. :)
