What Should We Do About Thanksgiving Day in North America?

As you may already know, Monday October 12, 2015 is Thanksgiving Day in Canada this year. It is not until Thursday, November 26th, for those who celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. There is often friendly banter between friends from these bordering countries in North America about the FIRST Thanksgiving. In the recent article, "Canadian vs. United States Thanksgiving," it puts to rest using factual evidence about which was first, "the turkey or the egg?" which may answer some of the issues debated by U.S. and Canadian Citizens. It also introduces an idea for consideration, regarding the celebration of Thanksgiving Day. So, after reading the article, what say you? (

Who cares which Thanksgiving was first. Let the Canucks do their own thing and we'll do ours.

JohnRoberts And did you even read the article I mentioned? LOL It was to be humor (as you would see from the original), not seriousness. Thus, the "I am not thankful for anything..." emoticon :winking:

I don't think it matters, to be honest! I think it's great that both countries have a day to give thanks for all their blessings.

I actually like your idea of 2eks the best but you only had the 2 day here so voted for it lol

I think it is good that both countries celebrate the holiday on their own day and in their own way.

Let's do all three -- the Canadians keep their traditional Thanksgiving, the U.S. keeps ours and then we choose a day to celebrate together. : ) Only the turkeys would be unhappy.

Feisty56 I am sure there would be another "turkey" or two that would something to complain about no matter what. emoticon :winking:

I voted to leave it as it is. The Canadians can celebrate their Thanksgiving and we ours and the lucky ones who have family in both countries get to celebrate twice. I'm also afraid that if we, the United Statesians, suggest it, the Canadians will think we are trying to United Statesinize them.

Oh, my goodness! We really do think a lot alike. You have me laughing here. I love the pun!

I voted for leaving it the way it is. I could scarcely be concerned when the Canadians are celebrating their Thanksgiving.

Being in the UK, I wouldn't have a say in it anyway but I still voted!

A north American question, I shall keep right out of!

MegL It was all done tongue-in-cheek (reading the original article). I am glad you voted anyway! emoticon :grin: You SO get me. emoticon :winking:

Yes, leave it the way it is and has been for years. Y'all have good points on all sides.

I liked your turkey picture in your article. I voted to stay the same because its tradition for both our countries. That way we are celebrating twice. :)
