Why I will not be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow......

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

While I would be the LAST to begrudge any of my friends a Happy Thanksgiving , I do not celebrate it on the same month as most of you. As CJ Baggins and a few others would attest we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in October. As to why it has more to do with tradition than anything else. The first thanksgiving celebrated in Canada was in 1578 by a fellow named Martin Frobisher.
