  1. Why is it traditional to eat turkey for Thanksgiving dinner? (In the US, at least.)  …  Because all the chickens crossed the road & the Pilgrims couldn’t catch them, so had to settle for turkey.
  2. What is “Festivus”? … This is a nasty, infected sore that has festered and is full of pus. Ewww!
  3. Why does Hanukka (or Chanuka, if you prefer) last for eight days? … Because they are fun holidays and nobody wants the fun to end.
  4. Why does Kwanzaa last seven days? … Because that word has 7 letters.
  5. According to the song, there are twelve days of Christmas, so why do most people only observe Christmas for one day? … Mostly because their houses aren’t big enough to hold all the many characters mentioned in that song.
  6. Why does Canada have Thanksgiving in October? … They want to celebrate before the really cold weather gets there and they get snowed in.
  7. What is Childermas? … I believe this is the long standing rule that says you must have more children.
  8. In the US, why is the Friday after Thanksgiving known as “Black Friday”? … This big shopping day is called Black Friday because of this secret: If a shopper wears black clothes at the stores, only they will get a special discount on purchases.
  9. What is “Boxing Day”? … For real I think it is a sporting event.
  10. What is “Saturnalia”? … This is a day when the planet Saturn releases millions of aliens to come to Earth.

    • Thanks, Bill!
      This could be true, but at times we here are colder than places in Canada! Oh, and when we came through Alaska years ago, it was August … and snowing there at the airport! So strange. 🙂
