Americans are a patriotic bunch and as the first
Thanksgiving happened on what is now part of the
USA and is often depicted as occurring under a flag
pole that flies the stars and stripes we often assume
the Pilgrims were Americans.
There was no USA when the Pilgrims landed.
No 49th parallel.
Even the Toronto Maple Leafs didn't exist in
those far off days.
It was British North America and therefore we have
as much right to those sanctimonious, self-righteous
bigots of old as they do.
So you can rest easy on the Pilgrim front, Canada
and have a great Thanksgiving!
