Re: Mandela- WTF? Since when is thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday?
What the f*ck? Since when is thanksgiving the fourth Thursday?

I have ALWAYS known it was the third Thurs! So much so that I even made my vacation week this year the third week.

Went to go book an RV for it and found out it's the fourth Thursday. And when I looked it up online trying to figure out why it was so late this year, everything said it's always been the fourth Thurs.

Ok... Who else remembers it ALWAYS being the third Thursday?

This is just tripping me out.

Re: Mandela- WTF? Since when is thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday?
I figured it out.

If it falls on Mon thru thurs than that makes it so there is a full week still after the holiday. That tricks my stupid brain into thinking it's the third week.

If it falls on Friday or Saturday only once every 7 yrs then it's on the last week.

It's just an illusion

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72568602


This "update" shit you guys talk about is partly why people don't take Mandela Effect seriously. Stop with that stupid shit. You make it sound like people are NPCs or robots. The only thing that makes you special snowflakes is your propensity to mental retardation. Now if you want to talk about Mandela Effect like an adult, I'm all ears.

I typed that rather tongue in cheek. I'm still on the fence about "updates." But, since you are determined to be "Asshole Internet Warrior" in your reply to me, I can only conclude that you are not capable of having an adult conversation with anyone.

Good day!

Re: Mandela- WTF? Since when is thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday?
If so, it would mean it could fall as early as the 15th of Nov. That has never happened in my 44 years here on Earth. No, I do not believe it's ever fallen on the third Thursday...and if it's usually around the 23rd (as most here claim), than that's not likely possible, either, mostly because that would be the last date it could fall on and still be within the third week of Nov. The Law of Probability says it's much more likely to fall within the fourth week.

Here's Why Thanksgiving Is So Late This Year

As 1941 ended, Roosevelt made the final permanent change, as he signed a bill making Thanksgiving Day fall on the fourth Thursday of November, regardless of if it is the last Thursday of the month or not. And for 2019, you may be thinking, "When is Thanksgiving?" This year, the month of November begins on a Friday, which means the fourth Thursday of the month falls on Nov. 28—it's the first time Thanksgiving has been this late since 2013.

Actually, I'm wrong about the 23rd. If it's ever fallen on the third Thursday of the month, it could never fall on any date later than the 21st. So, all you people who remember the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th being the most popular dates for Thanksgiving, must be in favor of it falling on the fourth Thursday.

I'm completely floored and tripping balls.

I'm 45 and am so sure of this I would have bet anyone a lot of money it was the third Thurs.

Does no one else remember it being the third Thurs??

Ok. Thanks for the clarification but that's beside the point that the OP is attempting to make with this thread...that the date change is due to a "Mandela Effect". We are talking in the recent past.

Re: Mandela- WTF? Since when is thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday?
Last year Thanksgiving fell on the 22nd (the 4th Thursday). This gives retailers 32 days of sales before Christmas. For stores dependent upon Christmas sales, the worst is when Thanksgiving falls on the 28th, which is only 26 days of shopping.

I live in Central America. Our Costco (Pricesmart) has that stuff out in September.

I worked for a goldsmith for the year that Christmas shopping season was only 26 days. It was interesting to see that the ore shopping days, the better the sales, which were fairly consistent day to day during the holidays. I hate Christmas after having to work retail during holidays. Never again.
