Hey, why isn’t our Thanksgiving in October too? Then we could have fun at the same time as our northern neighbors. We celebrate Guy Who Got Lost And “Discovered” A Continent Already Full Of People And Boy Did He Mess Them Up day in October. In principle Thanksgiving alludes to this, being a quintessentially colonialist holiday. So why not do a Columbus Day/TG mashup? Then have candy for Scary Pagan Day/Halloween as dessert? Probably more historically accurate too. I’ve lived in New England — trust me, the Pilgrims weren’t harvesting diddlysquat in late November. If it wasn’t out of the ground by mid-October there was a good chance it got killed by frost. So what, then they sat around and waited a month before they ate it?
…I’m overthinking this, aren’t I? Probably because I have to go to work today. ::sigh::
Anyway, happy TG to CAN.
