Happy Thanksgiving!

Let me be the first to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving!


Sorry, Mr. T, I should have been more specific: Happy *Canadian* Thanksgiving! While Americans wait until late November to celebrate turkey day, those wacky Canucks get it over with in October. Americans and Canadians celebrate the holiday similarly: friends and family gather to enjoy a meal together. Really, the only difference is in the menu.

On the big day, Americans eat turkey. So do Canadians! However, our northern friends coat their turkey with a thick layer of maple syrup. From what I hear, they do that with all their poultry dishes. Canadians also enjoy traditional side dishes like sweet potatoes and stuffing. Of course, Canadians enjoy their own special versions of these dishes. We all know that when Canadians eat bacon, they are actually eating ham, or "Canadian Bacon", as they call it. Similarly, the Canadian version of sweet potatoes is actually a porridge made of ham and maple syrup. And their version of "stuffing" is really just a six-pack of Molson Canadian Lager.

After the main course, Canadian families skip dessert -- no punk'n pie or anything like that. Instead Canucks go straight for the Poutine, a delightful combination of french fries, cheese curds and piping hot gravy. How does it taste? Like all foods covered with piping hot gravy, it tastes DELCIOUS.
