Gee, didn’t I already write a Thanksgiving post? Oh yes, back in October when it was Thanksgiving here! My American friends are only just now getting around to celebrating it. Lagging behind us yet again 🙂
I’m told that it’s because the harvest season is much earlier here. There might be some truth to that.
I think the real reason is that it kicks off the official Christmas shopping season, and if they had it last month, that’s simply too much time between holidays. Imagine all the Black Fridays that they could jam into that 2 month period!?
