Americans have Thanksgiving (in November) to give thanks for the Pilgrim Fathers' first harvest. I asked a Canadian once why they also had Thanksgiving (in October) and after some thought they decided they were giving thanks for not being part of the United States ;-)

The UK equivalent is the Harvest Festival in September.

We celebrate expelling the troublesome Americans from the Empire, and stopping them being coloured a pretty pink on the map, on 4th July.
