Thanksgiving in the Great White North

What ho, the seasons have swung, there’s a crispness in the air, the country is divided between pumpkin spice and apple cider while maple maintains its mainstay status. While the effects of COVID-19 continues to impact our day-to-day and we’re being actively encouraged by the powers that be to eschew gatherings with anyone outside of our households in the interests of health and safety for all, there are still turkeys being prepared, cranberries being sauced and I’m sure someone’s going to be cramming pureed pumpkin into a pie shell and then pretending it’s delicious for the sake of tradition.

It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada, and while the world is still topsy-turvy, while we’re still distancing from our friends and families, we’re still thankful for a great many things, not the least of which that we can still stay somewhat connected thanks to modern technology. May you all be safe, may you all be healthy, may you all avoid the dreaded lurgy, and may none of you find that instead of preparing a turkey, you accidently put a clockatrice in your oven, and now he’s -really- mad about the stuffing…

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!
