According to Wikipedia:
"The history of Thanksgiving in Canada goes back to an English explorer, Martin Frobisher, who had been futilely attempting to find a northern passage to the Orient. He did, however, establish a settlement in Canada. In the year 1578, Frobisher held a formal ceremony in what is now the province of "Newfoundland and Labrador", to give thanks for surviving the long journey. This event is widely considered to be the first Canadian Thanksgiving, and the first official Thanksgiving to occur in North America."
So, I've been doing a lot of work this weekend because of some man who wouldn't stop and ask for directions?
Right now, I have to retreat to my kitchen to burn some pies and try to stuff some bread up a dead bird's hinny.
Yeah, I know. It sounds like a good time, right?
But, I am thankful that you dropped by.
So, if you're Canadian – Happy Thanksgiving.
And, to everyone else – have a wonderful weekend.
