Holiday wishes and coming out

I would like to take this time to wish all of our friends in The Great White North a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope this day finds you safe and happy celebrating this day with your loved ones. Those of us who live south of the 48th paralell get our turn next month! I've always wondered, does CBC show hockey games on your turkey day the way that US tv shows football on ours?

Here in the US today is Columbus Day, which I don't imagine is really any cause for celebration if you're Native American but does give you a long weekend if you work for fed or state gov't.

Today is also National Coming Out Day, at least it is in the US, I'm not sure about Canada or elsewhere. I've noticed that there have been quite a few posts about coming out lately so I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the subject. I'm not an activist, I don't ever intend to be, I just want to live my life in peace as who I am. That being said, I don't know what the future holds in store for me, none of us do, fate is kind of funny that way. I'm out to most of my immediate family and friends but not to society in general. I'm not keeping it a deep, dark secret and if asked I'll tell you but I don't feel the need to run up to random strangers on the street and tell them all about myself, either. Okay, 'nuff said.

I'll finish by saying that I hope everyone has a safe and happy day whether you're in Canada, the US, the UK, Ireland, or anywhere else in this world!
