THANKSGIVING ONE WEEK LATE. OR ONE MONTH EARLY. SORRY ABOUT THAT.
If you’re Canadian, you know that this past Monday was Thanksgiving. If you’re American you’re confused why Canadians are calling this “Thanksgiving” when clearly the “real” Thanksgiving isn’t until next month. Let me try to explain (without doing any actual research) and determine whether it should indeed be called Thanksgiving or whether Canadians can take the lead in a new holiday called “Sorrygiving”. American Thanksgiving marks the official beginning of the holiday season in America. It is marked by consuming an obscene amount of turkey (preferably deep-fried) along with various healthy vegetables like mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, mashed and scalloped potatoes and Brussel sprouts (with bacon) all covered in gravy of course. In the unlikely event there are leftovers, they will be consumed later that night or perhaps as breakfast the next day before everyone heads out shopping on “Black Friday”.

About Steve Patterson
Best known to hundreds of thousands of comedy fans as the host of The Debaters on CBC Radio One/CBC podcasts since 2007 and The Debaters Live, which has delighted corporate and sold-out theatre audiences nationwide since 2012, there is no debate that Steve Patterson is North America’s funniest and least moderate debate moderator. As a solo comedian, he’s not too shabby either. With over two decades of headlining experience all across Canada and all around the world, Patterson packs a well-traveled, well-honed delivery with relentless research to create one of a kind and up to the moment shows wherever he performs.
