    Why would I be angry about letting you know that your claim about the British eating turkey on American thanksgiving day was incorrect.
    I asked a question, including the question mark. I made no claim.

    Only Americans. No British people celebrate it, which is what I said to Chaney3.
    However, the harvest part of it is still celebrated by many churches and most schools.

    Americans living here might do I suppose.
    Many churches and schools celebrate it over in the UK.

    I am very doubtful they are all American. πŸ™‚

    It was a form of “have you stopped beating your wife question” and within it was the assumption that brits at some point ate turkeys to celebrate thanksgiving.

    Brits do not celebrate American thanksgiving. Some schools and churches may recognise its significance historically and culturally.

    Harvest festivals in the UK are not associated with the American celebration of thanksgiving.

    The practice if clubbing seals to death was stopped years ago rookie, stop living in the past.

    No real Canadian would use his hockey stick either. Prove it, or move along.

    In American schools based in the the UK they will for sure. Schools exclusively for brits may recognise the historical occurrence and its cultural relevance.
