This is not a joke and it actually happened. It demonstrates the British humor which I thoroughly enjoy.

It was just before the Thanksgiving Day break at work in 1995 and we had a number of British colleagues in the States who worked for our company in England. They were returning to England the next day so a group of we Americans and British stopped at a local watering hole to have a few and the conversation got around to the holiday.
One of my American friends asked, "How do you guys celebrate Thanksgiving in England?"
Whereupon another American chastised, "You Dummy! They don't celebrate Thanksgiving in England! That is an American holiday."
At this point, one of the Brits said, "No, actually we do celebrate Thanksgiving, but we do it on the 4th of July."

Now that made me laugh - and I say that as an expat Scot. The "English" are very strange.. Now , the Scots are a very different kettle of fish
Being from the MacDonald clan, should I consider that a compliment?...................................................DizzyIzzy
