Late Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is very late in the month this year. It really seems that this week should be Thanksgiving since it is already the 18th.Thanksgiving Day - Pilgrims - Feast - Plymouth Plantation - Plymouth ColonyHowever, since the month of November started on a Friday, this pushes Thanksgiving back to the 28th. It is the latest date that is possible for Thanksgiving and really shortens the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

It will not be the first time I have given up all or part of my Thanksgiving holiday for work. One year I spent Thanksgiving teaching in India, and another one more recently in Australia.
