Don’t get me wrong, it’s great for us Europeans but are people off from work today? It’s a monday?
it's Canadian thanksgiving today
Ah cheers! Feel free to have it every day then!
It's also Columbus Day in the United States.
Thank you for saying that. Instead of the god awful “new” name they gave it.
No need to get all indigenous
I was wondering the same ?
55 Cities have elected to call it "Indigenous Peoples Day" as opposed to "Columbus Day" here in the States....
What’s terrible about indigenous peoples day?
Happy Columbus Day! I love a three day weekend in October.
I also want to wish my friends up north a happy Thanksgiving! I, for one, am thankful to have a place like hf to discuss hockey and have fun with it. We may root for different teams, but you make it fun and interesting.
Enjoy your day, everyone.
This is a great reaction
That it’s not a separate paid holiday from Columbus Day. If we had TWO long weekends in October, that would be really boss.
Some people don't like change, but naming after a guy that never stepped foot on North American soil seems rather odd to me.
Thanks, and you
Why not Cleveland Day?
Fixed that. It’s early, I just got up, and “Thanksgiving” made me think “November”.
Sorry for the error.
Cincinnati voted against it
They ARE celebrating in Cleveland. The Browns are 2-2-1.
wasn't all this yesterday?
I mean it’s also odd to name it after a guy that commuted genocide on the indigenous people living here.
Technically he committed the genocide in Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Can't commit genocide in a place you have never been
But seriously, I agree 100%.
Other than schools and govt offices do people really get off for this? It’s a normal work day for me...
I think it depends on the industry you are in. If you are in an industry where they are open 365 days a year, yeah you will probably have to work. If you are in an industry that closes weekends, you probably won't have to work.
3 out of 4 games today are early.
