For what its worth - and this should serve as the basis for a little 
statistical experiment - folks should pay attention to the year 2013.

In 2013, Thanksgiving falls on the latest possible date - November 28.  That 
means that the fourth full weekend of November is BEFORE Thanksgiving - 
November 23-24. So, unless the CQWW Committee goes off the rail and doesn't 
follow its practice of using the full weekend of November, CQWW CW will not 
be alligned with Turkey Day.

Will be interesting to see what total US activity is like that weekend.
