Happy Thanksgiving day for you, beaker, all for all my canadian friends, frederick and others.

The Thanksgiving day in Canada is celebrated the second Monday of October, while in USA or Brazil it is celebrated the fourth Thursday of November, and in some other countries around the same date.

Curiously today it is coincident with the Spanishness day. This day is holiday in Spain, every year, regardless of the day of the week, "To commemorate the arrival of Columbus in Americas in 1492. It is also celebrated as the day of the Armed Forces in Spain". It's mainly a political celebration in Spain, with parades, etc., also some south american countries celebrate the Spanishness, and even there is a well known parade in New York, festive, probably due to the big Spanish speaking population there.

The coincidence of this year is not very frequent, last time that October, the 12, was coincident with the second Monday of the month was in 2015 (the previous match I was not yet a member of the "Calcudoku Club").

But the difference with you and USA, … , is that, here, nobody celebrate anything at home [crying], that is, no roast turkey and no "peace pipe and pumpkin pie". This is very sad and very unfortunate for me, I really like the roast turkey, with strawberry, gooseberry or cranberry sauce. It can be accompanied with a good pink or red wine [smile] [smile], in this way we would comply with the classical suggestion "In vino veritas, in aqua sanitas". I would really like that we also had this nice tradition, in this case I would even test the pipe, though I do not usually smoke.
