Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. It's always on the second Monday of October, giving us a wonderful 3-day weekend to enjoy the autumn colours of the leaves changing.
These days, many people (perhaps most?) celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with friends and family on Sunday rather than on the actual holiday Monday. Makes sense to me. It gives everyone a day to prepare, a day to celebrate, and a day to recover. Alternatively a day to drive, a day to rest, and a day to drive back home.
For me it will be different this year; Ms. Eclectic is out west, visiting and celebrating with her family. Meanwhile, I'm having a play rehearsal today and visiting with friends tomorrow.
Mostly, though, my Thanksgiving this year is being catered by Pizza Hut: buy one pizza and get the next three for "five bucks, five bucks, five bucks."
Above all, I don't know how else to say this, but I can't believe the wonderful life I have had. Everyday is Thanksgiving for me.
