Turkey? In October?

Happy Thanksgiving to all you in Canada (aka the frozen arctic wasteland). I tell you, most of the people in Georgia still think Canada is covered by igloos, Eskimo (Inuit), and hockey fanatics. Ok, so they're right about one thing. It must be a bitch trying to prop a hockey stick against the wall of an igloo.

I wish I could be there. Really, I do.


  • Having lived in Canada for 4 years of my life, I can tell you that the turkey is a rumor! The local grocer runs no specials on the turkey because very few really celebrate. It is a minor, minor holiday. My ex-mother-in-law used to make a dinner, and would keep it warm on the stove, should anyone come by, they were welcome to fix a plate and eat. Nothing that even remotely resembles the warm family tradition we hold so dear here in the states! By the way, socialized medicine SUCKS! I had brain surgery and a baby over there and almost died both times due to neglect, low staffing and overcrowding. You are nothing but a number in Canada. Thanks for the great read....Love your Blog!!! Diane (aka: Curls-R-Us)

  • I would beg to differ about the not being a "big" holiday when it comes to Thanksgiving.
    Every year since I was born my family and all my friends families get together and have big turkey dinners and celebrate all weekend.
    Albeit yes its not as HUGE as it is in the states.

  • Ditto here. We have a family get together at this time of year. Hey, this year there were no fist fights.
