    Canadians... They don't even Thanksgiving correctly. They're a few weeks off like, EVERY year. Maybe all the snow and maple syrup has affected their brain activity or something. :p

    I've been dealing with a Canadian company re: Thanksgiving this week, trying to communicate the significance of the American version of the holiday and how the exodus of employs would begin last Friday and the sound of crickets would be emanating from offices by Wednesday afternoon. They had to learn the hard way.

    Well, yes. Yes I am.

    We don't forget that. We revel in that. It's like having a really big living room, and no grubby, rowdy relatives filling it up.

    Then maybe you guys should stop complaining about random petty stuff that has no impact on your life.

    I mean, come on, you have the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade!! How great is that? But no, some guy needs to whine about it. "Ohhh, it's not like it used to be." Yes, things change. Get over it.

    So again I say, Happy Thanksgiving, America! :D

    And all this time I thought you were just celebrating late! ;)

    I'm glad Canada's Thanksgiving is in October. It gives me a 10 week break between turkey dinners.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to all Americans. And I'm sorry your parade is turning into a non-parade...

    So others have gotten you worked up, and you seem to be bagging on me, the OP. I haven't said anything derogatory about you or Canada. I haven't said anything at all since the first few posts. At least for me this parade was part of my youth, and I found the way it has developed to be disappointing. Maybe if you're going to be combative and condescending you should stop posting in a thread you obviously could care less about and stop acting like a jerk.

    There is a Canadian problem? :eek:

    I thought that was settled during the Pig War? :D

    Why are all these Canucks in here? Isn't Canada closed today? It is Friday isn't it?

    It might be a bit played out now, but that doesn't make it any less true.

    We're all at the pub, getting drunk and being jerks. :D The internet is still open, though.

    It's dark and they are too scared to go outside in these conditions. So they hang out on the internet after getting drunk ;)

    Hmmm....

    I wonder how much life this thread has left? I'm predicting it gets closed soon.

    Too bad, because the OP brought up a topic about a parade. Who would've thought a parade could be so controversial.

    Do the bars up in Canada still have a fence running through the center keeping the single gals safe?

    Our specialty at the Bad Dog is making mountains out of mole hills.

    I didn't read the whole thread, so forgive me if it has been covered. The very point of the MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE was commerce. Macy's Department Store sponsored a parade which ended with Santa Claus leading people into the store. The idea was to get people to come into the store and buy things.
