    U.S. Thanksgiving!

    November 24, 2011

    Posted by Andrew VanderPloeg

    There are pros and cons to the fact that we Canadians have our Thanksgiving celebrations in October. As opposed to the late November tradition of our American friends, our October Thanksgiving breaks up the time between Labor Day and Christmas very nicely and on a closely related note, it isn't so close to Christmas which is great from the perspective of distributing 'time off' and turkey consumption.

    On the con side, there's the reality of watching a nations-worth of people all getting two days off when we're still at our desks. Nevertheless, that's not a complaint. We'll use the time that you all are out of the office effectively and look forward to connecting with you all come Monday!

    From our team to each of our American readers and your families, we wish you a most excellent and blessed Thanksgiving!
