Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends.  We have some Americans living here and, in fact, we have a number of American listeners in Montana who love listening to The Greatest Hits of All Time.

I am a proud Canadian.  Patriotic for sure.  But I believe our American friends do a lot of things bigger and better than we do and I'm envious.

Thanksgiving is at the top of the list.  We mark it in October and that's OK with me.  It's timely - a harvest time celebration for us.  But, we only take one day, making it a three day long weekend.  Americans take a FOUR day weekend for Thanksgiving.  I wish we did that.

I also like the way Americans support their teams.  From Little League to high school football to university sports and the pros.  They do it right.  They show up.  They get together for tailgate parties with motor homes and barbecues.  We don't.  I wish we did.

A lot of Americans live by the old saying "Go Big or Go Home."  A lot of Canadians....just stay at home.

Happy American Thanksgiving or, as we call it in Canada, Thursday.
