Sometimes the calendar confuses the Betster. It doesn't help that every year for Christmas the Betster always seems to get an international calendar with holidays listed like Oct. 8, Thanksgiving. Holy Maple Leaf! The Betster had to look twice at that one. It turns out it's Canadian Thanksgiving, which the Betster didn't even know our neighbors to the east have. Well, why shouldn't Canadians be thankful? It makes sense to celebrate a good harvest this time of year.
