All About "Eve"
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
What does it take for a holiday earn an "Eve" status? We have the biggies of Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, but you don't hear about Thanksgiving Eve? Why not "Easter Eve"?
There is "The eve of the election" but does really count as "eve" status?
And is "eve" the night before or is it the whole day? You hear the phrase, "Christmas Eve day" but wouldn't that be "The Day Before Christmas"?
Oh Well, Happy Black Friday Eve Eve.
UPDATE: I just hear someone on TV use "Thanksgiving Eve!" But I didn't check to see if he meant tonight (Wed. night) or the evening of Thanksgiving (Thursday night).
