Why do you Americans insist on celebrating Thanksgiving a month late?

    Everyone knows that the real Thanksgiving always falls on the second Monday of October, as is celebrated up here in Canada.

    You guys are left to consume our excess, second rate birds...

    ... and have only 1 month to properly digest your meals so as to make room for Christmas egg nog, cookies, lard cakes, and such and such

      I wish we could give thanks in the Spring.  Thanksgiving is just too close to Christmas.   Even if we celebrated it the second Monday in Oct. as you do, it's still too close for me.

        you can't have it in the spring.. Easter is in the spring...

        plusm if you dont have it in the fall, then all you have is Halloween candy to keep you going until Christmas

          Judging others is a big part of being American.  First you want to take away our guns, now this.
