    Yeah, I know its not what it used to be. I remember a pretty good cup of coffee many years ago- something's changed.

    Since Canadians and Americans celebrate Christmas the same days, I think we should get together and come up with a common date for Thanksgiving too.

    And I don’t give a crap which day is agreed upon. I’ll gladly accept the Canadian day:

    I don’t have any emotional attachments to Thursdays in November.

    I'm not Ukrainian, but I've always been surrounded by them here in Canada.
    For me Christmas is not Christmas without a plate of Perogies and Cabbage Rolls.... with a little Kielbassa (Kubasa) on the side.

    Far better than a dry old Turkey any day ;)

    Tim Horton's started going downhill the day it was bought out by American's :D.

    Oh yeah!
    Love perogies and cabbage rolls, kubasa, all that- my hometown was blessed with the Ukrainians, Polish and Italians- Christmas time was an international feast!

    I was born (1958) in North Bay and lived there until I was 19.....lots of lake skating on Lake Nipissing in the winter. Most of my hockey playing was on outdoor rinks....even many league games were outdoors.....shovel the rink before the game started.

    My favourite memory is one winter it got warm enough to rain for a few hours and then a cold snap came very quickly and froze all the rain...there was already lots of snow on the ground and now it had a very thick coating of ice on top. You could skate anywhere......over lawns and roads.....the whole world was a huge skating rink.....we skated all over the golf course.....I would have been about 14 or 15 years old.....it was awesome!! Only lasted one day though but we spent that whole day skating everywhere we could...lol.

    Great memories!
    My favourite Christmas gift was a pair of "pro" hockey gloves- I was so proud of them!

    I agree, but it must be said that you'd outrage government employees on both sides of the border!

    I would say watching the World Jr championships is a seasonal staple in Canada.

    Outdoor skating, tobogganing, and lots of good food are others.

    Yes... this takes precedence more than the NHL during the holiday season in many Canadian households.

    That’s the thing:

    As the long as those days correspond with their other holiday days off, a way to work it to their advantage, they don’t care.

    Patriotism has nothing to do with it, and nobody freaking really understands Thanksgiving anyway. It’s not tied to any specific date, only by custom.
