To my Canadian foot friends - have a great Thanksgiving!!

We will have our turkey dinner today. Somehow, still not sure how, we've ended up with 25 people coming.

Ooops.

Well if you're going to complain then I'll just stay home. Happy Thanksgiving anyway!!!! So, feel free to educate me, I know nothing at all about Canadian TG. Does this commorate a specific event, or are you just glad you don't live a few miles south, what gives?

Rick - do you mean why the difference in the date? I don't know. My uneducated guess is that it's because by mid-November we usually have lots of snow and it's 20 below zero - hardly harvest weather.

We ended up with 24 for dinner (including us). Other than my husband needing stiches and a tetanus shot (injury due to careless opening of the plastic the raw turkey was in) - it went pretty well!!!

Thanksgiving is the same here as there - too much turkey, too much stuffing, too much pumpkin pie.

Not many people can claim the turkey gave them stitches on Thanksgiving.

Wendy,

Only 24, I would have shown up if I knew you had a no show. I'm sure you will never let your husband live down the year he lost the fight with the Thanksgiving turkey. I trust he's ok and receiving the best possible care.
