Technically today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada, but the majority of people I know had their turkey dinners yesterday. I am one such person. I have exactly 742 pounds of leftovers to deal with. Or something like that.
Thusly, I’m still in the midst of cleaning up the disaster of a house I am owner to. Oh! And we have 6 cords of wood to stack today. Which we will do like so. Consequently I only have a tease of my Thanksgiving for you, with the full post to come tomorrow.
As an aside, for those who are wondering … Canadian Thanksgiving differs from the American version in that we are celebrating the bounty of the harvest and the end of the growing season as opposed to “that Pilgrim stuff”. Sorry – everything I know about Pilgrims I gleaned from an episode of The Brady Bunch.
Also, every Thanksgiving Eve, Canadians leave out miniature bales of straw as an offering to the Thanksgiving Nymph. If in the morning your bale of straw is gone, you will be blessed with the gift of a salmonella free holiday.
Or something like that.
