Comedian Seth Rogen and “Funny or Die” have just released a 1-minute video about how Rogen’s parents lied to him about Jewish people not celebrating Thanksgiving.
Watch it, it’s cute enough. Then go watch him getting a blow job from Lisa Kudrow and you’ll understand everything.

So we Wikied Canadian Thanksgiving and got really bored, and slept it off and came back and copypasted some of it so the page wouldn’t look like all we did was embed a freaking video.
Thanksgiving is a statutory holiday in most jurisdictions of Canada, with the exceptions being the Atlantic provinces of Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, where it is an optional holiday. Companies that are regulated by the federal government (such as those in the telecommunications and banking sectors) recognize the holiday regardless of its provincial status.
As a liturgical festival, Thanksgiving corresponds to the English and continental European harvest festival, with churches decorated with cornucopias, pumpkins, corn, wheat sheaves, and other harvest bounty, English and European harvest hymns sung on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend.
While the actual Thanksgiving holiday is on a Monday, Canadians may gather for their Thanksgiving feast on any day during the long weekend, with Saturday being the least common. Foods traditionally served at Thanksgiving include roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, various fall vegetables (mainly various kinds of squashes but also Brussels sprouts), and pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving in Canada is also often a time for weekend getaways.
