Two cents in Two Sentences - American Thanksgiving, should we hop on that bandwagon?

Our Thanksgivings are a month+ apart, one is based around the harvest the other is based around the virtual obliteration of a culture, but it's a convenient time on the calendar in terms of a marker for acceptability of Christmas prep. So, as Canadians (because the US picked their date first) should we assimilate to their ways?

ZE: " I'd prefer it in November for the balance in my holiday calendar."

HM: “In general I would say no, although in the past I did celebrate a wonderful American Thanksgiving with some American South Granville Inhabiters and a turkey cooked by HP."

LC: "I guess if it means a Thanksgiving themed Simpson’s episode, I’m ‘bout-it ‘bout-it."

HP: “WHY is this even a question? It’s a chance to eat turkey and to have leftovers ­ besides, the whole holiday is originally American.”
