Hey Phyllis! Have some turkey for me - we won't have ours until Yankee Turkey Day.  Sad

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians!

Hey Phyllis,

You beat me to it!  Smile

Have a great *safe* weekend everyone. Have some gobble-gobble, some oink-oink, or, if you're not into meat, some veggie-veggie!

Be safe everyone!

OK, here's a quick question from someone that didn't know that Canada had its own Thanksgiving day...but what do you guys do to celebrate that holiday? I've experienced Thanksgiving US style, with turkey, pumpkin pie and everything that goes with that, but am curious to know how you good Canadian folk celebrate your own Thanksgiving. Am also curious to know what you're giving thanks for. Don't mean to be contentious in any way, just curious.

Exactly the same thing.

Turkey/ham/pumpkin pie...

It was basically done in the past to signify the end to the harvest season.

And it has some kinda religious thing to it too, but who cares about that? Gimme turkey!

HAHAHA

(just kidding to all the religi's here.)

Like 1011 says...just not for pilgrim reasons, more for harvest reasons. And it's not the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, nor is it the busiest travel day of the year in Canada.

Hey Canadians...some of my friends here eat this god-awful sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on the top. Do any Canadians eat such a thing? I had never seen it before, but wasn't sure if that was more because my family didn't eat such a thing and Mr. Harlot's family is Portuguese and certainly doesn't eat such a thing!

We have American Thanksgiving dinner with the same couple each year, and he's Hawaiian, so the turkey stuffing has teriyaki bacon in it. Man, that's some good stuff!

OH MY GOD.

I *sooooo* thought my grandmother was *NUTS*

Somehow, the family eats it, but YES. We eat that dish too! Oh my god.

I honestly would NEVER have told anyone this unless someone else brought it up HAHAHA

I have never known anyone here to serve it, but I did have it once in the US. God - awful doesn't even begin to describe it. It's awfully vile!!

I've had it too. I don't know many people that serve it but man alive that stuff is sweet. Far to sweet for even my sweet tooth.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!!!

Even worse than the sweetness is the texture. It's just...goo. Like pureed applesauce or something. With the goopy marshmallows on top. My friend who served it was quite good about it, saying that it didn't bother her if we didn't like it. I had one small forkful and haven't had any since - and we've had Thanksgiving with these friends for like five years now.

It's a great scam - these friends cook the whole dinner and we just bring dessert and tequila. Makes all of us happy because I'm not a good cook but I am a pretty good baker and we bring good tequila!

In the USA, the same Monday in October in Canadian Thanksgiving day is Columbus Day, the day in 1492 when Christoper Columbus was the first (non-scandavian) European to land in the Americas (with is the Island of Hispanola, on the Dominian Republic side. In the USA Columbus Day had become a big day to celebrate those of Italian ancestry, including parades and for politicans to campaign (most general elections are the 1st Tuesday in November, so only a few weeks later).

We do it one better in Hawaii - the local sweet potato is purple in color, so not only does it taste, smell and feel (texture) awful, it looks like something served in a bad sci-fi flick!

Happy Thanksgiving to all

Nice bird Phyllis!
No turkey for me this weekend unfortunately.

I'm heading to Kitchen-Waterloo for some Oktoberfesting today (and a little tour of my alma mater while I'm at it); and then tomorrow we're having a Thanksgiving TROUT dinner. (Don't ask!)

Save me some skin would ya?

HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Happy Thanksgiving Day.

Anything but oysters in the stuffing!

On a related note, and with all respect and affection, why is it that Canada can have its own Thanksgiving Day and its own model names for US cars but still use the "$" sign for money?

For those of you who don't know, $ comes from a "U" superimposed over an "S" or the other way 'round. It used to have two vertical lines down through it, but over the years that has been dropped but in any event, it means United States. So Canada, why not come up with one of your own?

£ is taken.
¢ is too.

Maybe a "C" superimposed over an "E" for Canada, Eh?  Smile

This should be a thread of its own.
I'd be interested in reading responses to those questions.

SlamClick:
- The USA and Canada are not the only countries to use the $ symbol.
- Americans don't own the concept of Thanksgiving, lol.
- We use different model names for US cars? I didn't know that.

I know that the Mercury line has all but disappeared in Canada. We kept the Ford Taurus, but got rid of the Sable, etc. Chrysler has dropped the Plymouth brand here for the most part too. Oldsmobiles are now a thing of the past.

Is that what you mean?
