U.S. Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday in November.

Well, doggone it. It looks like we'll have a couple more years of late Thanksgivings before we have another early one. Grrrr.

Quoted for truth. Sometimes it feels like I'm more excited for Christmas in Mid November then on Christmas Day.

Right, I was just saying that apparently "fourth Thursday in November" equals "never earlier than Nov. 22nd and never later than Nov. 28th". A late Thanksgiving is what we'll just have to put up with some years, it seems...

I agree with that ... when the season is fresh and weeks of the Christmas season are ahead, I'm more excited than on Christmas Day, when it'll all be over by bedtime!
