To all you Canadians out there.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend with those who are important to you.

This poor turkey thought he was off the hook this weekend because he's American.

Unfortunately, he accidentally crossed the border and now his goose his cooked.

My first Thanksgiving up here it snowed. This one I might just be grilling the turkey outside.

As an American married to a Canadian, we will be celebrating another one in 6 weeks or so.

Yep, we have ours earlier than the US. Here in Waterloo Region we celebrate Oktoberfest during this time as well. Effsea, and a few other PSO regulars, would love it here - Oktoberfest is all about beer, sausage, beer, polka music, more beer (and now the polka music is tolerable), German food, more beer - and a designated driver to take you home.

Google Oktoberfest and see where you should be this coming week. We always get lots of US visitors.

Maybe PokerStars should host a Canadian Thanksgiving Oktoberfest live tourney. I would be happy to help coordinate.

Many years ago we bundled the kids in their SNOW SUITS to watch the Thanksgiving Day Oktoberfest parade.

Yes, Canadians have a thanksgiving...

But it is not the same day as the US, plus...

They serve ham instead of turkey and call it BACON!

Silly canucks!

Yep, ham is an option, but around my neck of the Canadian woods most tables feature turkeys.

Canadian Bacon - another great invention!

We have to celebrate earlier than the US because we freeze over before November and hibernate till Spring - sometime in late April. (And if you believe this you are not a poker player.)

Hey Ron, nice to know someone in the neighbourhood. Have you lived in Stratford very long? I went to
"Teachers College" there in 1967. My wife has a good friend there. And everyone knows that Justin Beaber is from Stratford. Not that guys my age really care, but nice to see him doing well.

Effsea can fill you in on the beer scene - he seems to have a handle on that aspect of our culture.

Yep, we play online poker for REAL MONEY. No Black Friday here - and winnings are tax free - even at casinos! As for the medical plan, you'll get mixed opinions. But, the plan is fair for all and we take care of our brothers and sisters. No, sorry to disappoint you, but pot is not yet legal in Toronto.

Looking to move to the Frozen North? Google Government of Canada and check out immigration.

Thanks Annie, at my house we can actually still use things from the garden this year (usually gardens are done here by now). Fresh potatoes carrots and brussel sprouts, with turkey and all the trimmings, plus pumpkin pie for dessert. Can't wait!!
