While many are aware that the Canadian Thanksgiving is in October and the U.S. falls at the end of November most do not know why.
Researched done in the U.S. showed a significant reduction in murders and domestic disturbance calls by having the family oriented holiday well after the election cycle ended. So this year when gathering with your loved ones, be thankfully the dust has settled from the chaos we are currently going through
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
Thanksgiving is the celebration of harvest. Harvest come earlier up north, thus the celebration is earlier.
The real question is why people from New Mexico (for example) all want to eat north-eastern type of food for Thanksgiving when there's no turkey, apple, cranberries harvested in thousands miles around.

I've gotta say that that sounds like an "Internet fact" -- and did research in Canada conclude that, since there are comparatively damn-all murders there anyway, it didn't make any difference what day it was on?

We went to mass on Saturday to get the stupid papers signed for my eldest. The Gospel was this:
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Simple teaching that we should treat everyone as our equal and not pre-judge them by their race, religion or preference for sheep.
If that's the case, why do most Catholic priests refuse to give me communion? This always amuses me as they claim to be the 'real' God Squad and yet they ignore one of the fundamental teachings of Christ.
If only we had a festival to celebrate torturing and executing of papists...
