Living up here in Canada (where we all live in igloos and must snowshoe through 4 feet of snow every day - even in the summer!), I am always confused by the strange American custom of having Thanksgiving in November, instead of October when we have it. I'm guessing that the Canadian and American settlers couldn't keep their schedules coordinated properly or something on this whole "Thanksgiving thing". Or it might have something to do with the fact that we each settled our countries in entirely different years. I don't know. I'm not a historical scholar, damnit!
Anyways, I mention this because the November 23rd new episode of How I Met Your Mother is a Thanksgiving episode, complete with slaps. Because the slap is the one Thanksgiving tradition that brings everyone Canadians and Americans alike together. Check out the promo photos and a short synopsis below and enjoy it while you can, because we're facing a rerun for the November 30th episode.
