Thanksgiving has to be my favourite American holiday (sorry, Independence Day). I love the tradition and excitement of this holiday, which is definitely felt all the way up here in Canada. We didn’t have a turkey last night, but we did have a big dinner and I got to watch a couple of football games. It feels like we got to celebrate two Thanksgivings in six weeks, but this time without the long weekend. I’ll have to take the Thursday/Friday off work next year to really get in the spirit.
Today is Black Friday in the U.S., and many Canadian retailers are also getting in on the action. If you’re looking to do some shopping this weekend, check out the Great Canadian Rebates and Red Flag Deals websites.
