So how are you guys going to celebrate Thanksgiving on Monday?

I'm going to be spending the day at my grandparents'.

You mean Colombus Day, right? Thankgiving isn't 'till November.

For Colombus Day, I hope to have some friends over, then go see a movie. I hope.

I think Thanksgiving is on different dates in different countries. [I]American[I] Thanksgiving is in November, but he might not be American. :\

In Canada, Thanksgiving is in October, and it's this Monday. We don't have Columbus Day...

I'll be spending Thanksgiving fighting off this awful cold and deciding on my courses to take next term as well as who to vote for on Tuesday. ;_;'

My aunt might be coming over but my parents went out for dinner with her last week so I'm not even sure. Whether she comes over or not, though, I'm mostly just spending the weekend relaxing at home with my family. ♥

I'm English, so I won't be celebrating either day. However, if there is some cause to celebrate on Monday, this gives me a wonderful excuse to sit in my room and play Halo 3 all day.

I don't think we actually have plans this year for Thanksgiving. :x

But happy Thanksgiving all the same.

October 11th, 2008, 1:25 PM
Well, no, since I come from England haha

We'll do what we do every Thanksgiving: call up family from all over the country and have one enormous dinner.

Being Brittish I don't celebrate it.

And being completely honest I don't know what the holiday is about either. :x
A part from the obvious theme of giving thanks. xD

I wonder why British don't celebrate Thanksgiving... Oh well, too much Texas History homework is disturbing my American History Memory...

For Thanksgiving? I'll be spending it at my house, the casual kind, Turkey, PUMPKIN PIE OMG!, Sour Cookie Cake, and maybe mashed potatoes, depending on whether Obama wins or not.

When it comes in November for me, it'll be at my uncle's house since it's bigger. My grandparents have moved back up from Florida so this'll be their first with everyone in years!
I think a few members of the family will be there as well.

My turkey day tomorrow will be spent at home with family. We'd go to my aunt's house, but she has two cat's and I'm allergic to cats. D: It's gonna be a small dinner with a few people - but I prefer that over having thanksgiving with a huge family.

I will be enjoying a day filled with family food and sleeping. This year I plan to take over my uncle ralph's roll of occupying the couch all afternoon.
*thanks the lord for letting it be a day where work is cancelled*

Thanksgiving isn't just the Monday, for Canadians its both Sunday and Monday, and which day the families eat varies from family to family. For our family, we celebrate on Sunday, and big Turkey dinner!

But this year is a twist, my dad and I are going to a Raptors preseason game in the afternoon because my uncle won 2 SECOND ROW (yeah SECOND ROW) seats!

I don't celebrate Thanksgiving in New Zealand. But I take advantage of the shopping sales anyway.

I'ts a ways away! You know!!!

I'm not 100% sure, but isn't Thanksgiving something to do with the Pilgrims? And the native Americans?
I don't know, being English, but.... yeah. We don't do it. One huge blow-out meal a year is enough for me! Our 'turkey day' is Christmas, basically.

well it usually differs on which holidays we get in every country.

like Charon said, we only get turkeys for christmas. i dont even know if we have something similar to Thanksgiving though.

I think i'll raise a glass to Christophoro Columbo and then go to class and do hw... Darn America and it's not celebrating Thanksgiving on Columbus Day...

October 12th, 2008, 3:20 PM
Well Thanksgiving is basically celebrated because of the goodwill which the Native Americans showed to the people immigrating to North America, so it's pretty much a North American exclusive holiday.

I usually spend Thanksgiving at the G-parents house. It's definitely a nice time, even if we're not crazy about spending time with family, it's still good food and quality time.

Also American, though, so that doesn't get here until November. :P I'm not looking forward to working Black Friday after that though @_@

I wait until the weekend.

Then we have a giant fest :D

October 12th, 2008, 3:30 PM
I eat food on thanksgiving :)

I eat food on thanksgiving :)


I would have never guessed. I guess that's why many nickname this holiday: "Turkey Day".[/sarcastic comment]
