HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY, CANADA!

This is how you devour a turkey leg the Karenina way :D
My BFF called me on the phone this morning biatching why I haven't sent out any Thanksgiving greetings yet.  He goes, "Porket ba nasa US ka na, hindi ka na babati ng Thanksgiving? Canadian ka ah!" *loosely translated as "Just because you're in the States now you're not going to greet us a happy Thanksgiving?  You're still Canadian!"* LOL.  Of course, he was joking, but I was really glad to hear from him especially that we haven't been able to talk a lot recently.

I honestly intended to send out greetings last Friday but things got hectic for me over the weekend.  I was out of town from Thursday to Sunday with no Internet connection most of the time.  Then, today, I have to work to make up for my absences during my out of town trips, thus no Thanksgiving long weekend for me *boooo!*, and so I hope that this public greeting in my blog will suffice :D

A little trivia I gathered from Wikipedia regarding the celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving:

On Thursday, January 31, 1957, the  Canadian Parliament proclaimed:   "A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed - to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October."

And, if there's anything that's synonymous to Thanksgiving, it's nonetheless a turkey.  Neither me nor Vince is a fan of turkey but hey, it's the time of the year when a bird gets to outshine the rest of its winged relatives, so I'm not going to steal its thunder ;)

Friend:  What kind of dead animal is that?
Me:  PTERODACTYL! :D


HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY, CANADA !  I hope that Canadians celebrate this holiday in remembrance of how much God has truly blessed Canada :)

  14. Happy Thanksgiving Day Canada! Ay... I'm so looking forward to celebrate that soon... God willing... hehehe..

    Here for Yummy Sunday at Blue MOnday na nga rin... at sa lahat na din mga meme at mga araw... hehe...

    May meme o wala nandito lang ako lagi sis... About pla sa change ng domain name, totoo nga nawala ang ranking ko... but okay lang one step closer naman ako to monetizing my blog...

    Suggestion ko, buy your own domain habang PR1 pa lang tong blog mokasi mas hirap kung mas mataas na ang PR hirap na bitawan...
