Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

Why is it earlier than in the US?

One of the best and funniest explanations is from:

“It’s the accellerated Canadian Calendar.

Sure, they have New Year’s Day on the same day as us, but after that things begin to speed up. They celebrate the 4th of July on the 1st. By Autumn, one notices that Thanksgiving is an entire month before. Canadian Christmas is the 2nd week of November. Which makes the entire month of December New Year’s Eve… and everything is corrected on the night of January 1st and brought back into sync (though there is a bit of a “water hammer” issue of Christmas finally ending on the 3rd).

I’ve had it explained to me that since they’re closer to the pole, they spin faster than we do.

This makes sense to me.”

I like the statement that the Canadian Christmas is the 2nd week in November.
