Canadians sometimes marvel at how Thanksgiving seems to be a bigger deal there than Christmas since Americans get two days off work at Thanksgiving and only one at Christmas. In Canada, it's the opposite, and Christmas is by far the bigger celebration. Of course, Canadians don't have "black Friday", so what do you expect?

We make more of an effort at Christmas because it's easier to get time off. And since most of my extended family is pretty darned Chinese, they don't care much about Thanksgiving.
