I'm just sitting here finishing up a bit of school work before my extended family arrives for a nice turkey dinner. How are my fellow Canucks celebrating this weekend? However you choose to celebrate, I hope you and your loved ones have a good time and Happy Thanksgiving!

I had Thanksgiving with my family on Friday. This weekend I was going to go spotting at YYZ, but yesterday it rained and now it's cloudy, so I didn't go. I will be going on October 14th now matter the weather. Aviation show and the photography show on the same day. As for tomorrow, I am working. I have no problem with that because I'm getting time and a half.

Quoting Ronglimeng (Reply 3): I've noticed that the November Thanksgiving in the USA is a much bigger deal than our holiday. Its dead down there on Thanksgiving Day- almost like Christmas Day. Even McDonalds is closed.
The first year we moved to the States, I nearly died when I saw that my local grocery store was closed on Thanksgiving and open on Christmas Day. I wondered what kind of f'ed up place we had moved to!! Thanksgiving is a HUGE deal down here.
