    So today, i had changed the calender to october for when it happens tomorrow. I noticed that october 10 is Columbus day, but in canada is thanks giving day, usually is last thursday in november (Close to my birthday, sometimes on it) But i don't remember seeing it there before. Perhaps this calender is one that acknowledges international holidays opposed to the previous calenders.

    So i started to wonder what are some holidays the two countries share that isn't on the same day? Is makes me think, i mean Canada is Part of North america, is a neighboring country, share lots of similarites but just some that goes without much thought or questioning. :unsure:

    There is no family day on the calender, i think is more of a "Family day is every day" kind of thing, i dunno. I mean there is mothers day and fathers day, Grandparents day.... that about it. If family day was a holiday, is most likely thanksgiving or christmas.

    Thanksgiving remind us not to be assholes and that preserving one's self is more important than merging.

    I think each nation went through something significant that expressed gratitude for the enivornment or something that happened at different times and different years and every year they celebrated it annually and it turned into a holiday later on as the years went. unsure what exactly happened though

    Paganism had Christmas, then Christianity turned it into their personal holiday and kill the original owner.

    This thanksgiving I'm planning to exterminate an entire race of people and then share a turkey with them for dinner.
