Hey it is that time of the month . . . Welp for Canadians that is!

Hey what are they doing to that worm? Wait . . . OH GOD NO!!!

Apparently Thanksgiving comes early for those lucky canucks.

 Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day (Canadian French: Jour de l'Action de grĂ¢ce), occurring on the second Monday in October (since 1959), is an annual Canadian holiday to give thanks at the close of the harvest season. Although the original act of Parliament references God and the holiday is celebrated in churches, the holiday is now mostly celebrated in a secular manner.

On 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.

So if you did not know this and would like to no more about those crazy friendly Canadians this is the perfect opportunity to check out my favorite Calgarians  Vancourvrians(?) blog (The daily musings of one currently laid off, unemployed mechanics apprentice and his tireless search for workings) at:

The word waffles is what I took from this post.
