Change date of Thanksgiving

Move Thanksgiving from fourth to the third week in November to give an extra week for shopping, cultural events, family gatherings of a yuletide nature. (U.S.)

In certain more civilized countries, Thanksgiving is already celebrated in October. Well before Hallowe'en, unfortunately, but this provides plenty of time to make creative use of the turkey carcass.

Here in Canada, we celebrate it around October 8-13, or whenever a weekend falls around that timee.

I have a better idea. Let's cancel Christmas and replace it with a less capitalistic holiday.

I thought Christmas needed to be more capitalistic. <shrug>
