2. In Canada, They Call It "Yanksgiving"
Because, apparently, British loyalists lived in Canada once, too. Canadian Thanksgiving, a tradition celebrated since the end of the American Revolutionary War, is observed on the second MONDAY in OCTOBER, presumably so families may enjoy a long weekend before all the maple syrup freezes over. Our silly Thursday tradition is nothing more than a "Yanksgiving" pun to them, which isn't so out of hand considering I just reduced their rich national heritage to a syrup joke.
