    If it falls on November 22 and your parish's patron is St. Cecilia?

    Thanksgiving day is NOT A LITURGICAL DAY. It is a secular American “holiday” but it has no liturgical bearing whatsoever. Yes, you can mark the day and even say a votive mass of thanksgiving, but it has no formal affect on the day’s mass. (I’m not shouting at you; this is just a little peeve of mine; people always try to treat it like it is a liturgical day, and it isn’t. To be clear, I fully support coming to mass to give thanks.)

    I always get the day off. For that, I am thankful!

    While this may be true for the old rite, the novus ordo Missal for the United States includes a proper Mass for Thanksgiving Day, with its own preface. The Gloria is not said.
