Happy Thanksgiving!

The holiday season is bracketed by two major parades, probably the most famous in the United States: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the Tournament of Roses in Pasadena on New Year's Day. Maybe it's because it heralds the beginning of the season rather than its end, but the Thanksgiving Day parade has always been my favorite. Thanksgiving is the forgotten holiday, as Loudon Wainwright once sang, "just a buffet in between" Halloween and Christmas. Thanksgiving deserves better.

See, this is why Canadian Thanksgiving rocks. Having it back on Columbus Day means that Halloween is the meat in that sandwich... and gives us Canucks some time to rest and reflect on the holiday.
