Default National Polyamory Day

So apparently, some have decided that November 23 should be National Polyamory Day - anniversary of a pro poly court ruling in Canada.

Hmmm, not sure how I feel about that. While it makes sense (it coincides with the Canadian ruling), it also falls near or on Thanksgiving in the United States. If we have to remember/observe yet another holiday, I would have liked it to fall on a ... less crowded part of the calendar. Oh well, what's done is done, not likely to be reversed, I suppose I'll make the best of it.

Good luck with that. Not only is the world not ready for such a day, Americans would never commemorate something that happened in another country. Sorry, but that's just how we roll. The CPAA can declare and announce it in as many languages and as many times as they please, but it will never fly south of their border. Also, as Kevin points out, that date would conflict with Thanksgiving or the preparations, and that day is just about the most sacred holiday we have. Every American celebrates it in one way or another in elaborate fashion. Nobody messes with Thanksgiving - ever.

I know a lot of people who don't celebrate Thanksgiving. Some because who cares about a day about eating and some because of the violent history that it tries to white wash.

That said... this is about a NATIONAL polyamory day. Not international not world not whatever. Canada can have their national day whenever they want without it needing to cause a tizzy in polyamorous groups in other nations.

Canada would be happy if it caused a tizzy anywhere. Not happening.
