Thanksgiving will finally be upon my U.S. audience a lot sooner than you think. We, Canadians, celebrate Thanksgiving earlier in the month of October and I have to say I’m all excited about getting turkeyed out. Sometimes, we have two Thanksgiving celebrations in one weekend with plenty of leftovers.
