Tricks doesn't want a family day?
Never said that either. Trying to find out WHY we are suddenly getting this holiday. What could be the purpose of this.
Oh I see, that's why I asked. I think we should have at least two stats per month. I hate working.

Jesus Christ Tricks, did I eat your candy or something?

Of course family day is because of the political game. So?

Happy now? :roll:

Hey, I asked a simple question, you and Lily started this when you couldn't answer it. Next time don't start it.

I didn't start anything, and you were not asking a question. I was having fun, not being serious about it. I have no idea why you get all pissed at me.

And really, I don't care either.

Happy 2008 to you too...

It warrants a stat because it was a continued tradition when the settlers kept coming over. It wasn't a stat until 1950 something, so that's almost 400 years of thanksgiving. It was an already established tradition, they just gave it a day.

Maybe your wiki source didn't tell you when the 2nd Thanksgiving was celebrated? Or when it actually became an annual thing?

$1:
The first Thanksgiving Day in Canada after Confederation was observed on April 15, 1872, to celebrate the recovery of The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) from a serious illness.

No record is found of a Thanksgiving Day between 1872 and 1879.

From 1879 to 1898, both inclusive, it was observed on a Thursday in November. In 1899, it was fixed on a Thursday in October, where it stayed until 1907, with the exception of 1901 and 1904 when the date was fixed on a Thursday in November.

From 1908 to 1921, it was observed on a Monday in October, the exact date being appointed by proclamation.

You might want to rethink that 400 years of tradition thingy.
Doesn't say anything before confederation, and there are what 20 misses? Still something that was done before it was a stat, so it still was a tradition. Which this isn't.

What's the point of it?

I thought you were being serious. See I can't tell if you aren't or not.

Happy New Year!

All right... no new stats, because dammit, we need tradition.
Didn't say that either. You guys like putting words in my mouth don't you. I am saying there should be a REASON.


$1:
Looks like it didn't really become a tradition till the Americans arrived. :D
So it was a tradition? Glad to see we agree. :D

ROTFL You can't tell if I am serious or not? The :lol: and the ;-) should have said enough, and a comment like: "The PM says so" should have gotten to your sense of humour, or at least make you see it was all in fun.

Your question sounded rhetorical to me, and I replied to it in the post underneath yours, for as far as rhetorical questions can be replied to.

See, I didn't know you weren't being serious, and you didn't know I was asking a question. Simple mis-communication for both of us. :D
