So who ever wrote that, you can attack them.
History of Thanksgiving in Canada
The history of Thanksgiving in Canada goes back to an English explorer, Martin Frobisher, who had been futilely attempting to find a northern passage to the Orient. He did, however, establish a settlement in Canada. In the year 1578, Frobisher held a formal ceremony in what is now the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, to give thanks for surviving the long journey. This event is widely considered to be the first Canadian Thanksgiving, and the first official Thanksgiving to occur in North America. More settlers arrived and continued the ceremonial tradition initiated by Frobisher, who was eventually knighted and had an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean in northern Canada named after him — Frobisher Bay.
It should be noted that the 1578 ceremony was not the first Thanksgiving as defined by Native American tradition. Long before the time of Martin Frobisher, it was traditional in many Native American cultures to offer an official giving of thanks during autumnal gatherings. In Haudenasonee culture, Thanksgiving is a prayer recited to honor "the three sisters" (i.e., beans, corn and squash) during the fall harvest.
History of Thanksgiving in the United States
The Virginia colony
A collective Thanksgiving prayer was held in the Virginia Colony on December 4, 1619 near the current site of Berkeley Plantation, where annual celebrations are still held on the first Sunday in November.
Not Columbus, but thanks for comming out.
I guess your busted again.
When is Columbus found haiti day?
Only reason I ask, I want to know if I have that day off.
I know I have thanks giving day off, which has nothing to do with Columbus. As stated above by Speedy the unresourceful arrogant parrot!

Gutenberg is in Germany, so it's the German language who takes another punch. American who does not know geography.

The actual German way of saying is "Sieg Heil"
Sieg == Victory
Heil == To hail, salute, cheer.
Confirmed by a true German /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
Which I was told, it is also a crime to say that in Germany and is punishable for up to 3 years in prison.
