That surprised me too. That sort of stuff always pisses me off.
I truly dislike royalty.

Kind of sad to see The Gardens turn into an ugly pit.

What's your take on it, Canadian Michele? What do y'all do for Thanksgiving in Canada and what do you think and feel about it, etc. Thanks for info.

Hi Miss Pinkie,

I love any holiday where my family can get together, Susie. It doesn't have to be a holiday, actually, I just love it when the girls are here with their boyfriends, and we all have a nice dinner together.  Thanksgiving isn't as big a deal here as in the States (I think) but we have everyone together with Turkey, stuffing, etc, etc.

 Oh, yes, and wine. Can't forget the beverages!

So . . . does that help? (Sorry, but that's all I got . . .)

We were in Boston last year on Thanksgiving.  We booked it so we could join in the celebrations.  It turned out to be a damp squib as it was closed!  We had a very good Concierge in our hotel who managed to get us a reservation at The Chart House by the harbour otherwise we'd have been very hungry.  There were very few places open.  Surprisingly The Hilton by Faneuil Hall where we stayed did not have a restaurant of their own and had nothing to offer us even on room service, but we didn't go all that way for a room service Thanksgiving meal anyway.   But The Chart House meal was absolutely delicious and we went for the traditional turkey followed by pumpkin pie.  We are contemplating maybe going back to NY for this and join in the parade.  It certainly seems the only place where there is something on.  Boston for that day was rather boring.  The rest of the trip was enjoyable though.
