Meanwhile in Canada … Every year on the second Monday of October, Canadians celebrate the end of the Moose Ascendency.
During this dark period of Canadian history, the moose reigned supreme, forcing our provocatively dressed women to worship them, and slaughtering any man who got in their way. Eventually, Canadians discovered the mystical powers of Flannel, and we reached an uneasy detente. (Except in Newfoundland, which joined Confederation quite late.)
We call it Thanksgiving.
