It felt "too American" for our normal general knowledge. I didn't know they were Canadian. Removed the question and replaced it with something else.

It doesn't accept "S'more" singular. It shouldn't have to be plural. One single S'more takes marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate.

Why is it unfashionable to wear white after Labor Day? I thought it was Memorial Day, Veterans Day or Easter.

I tried literally every other American holiday that came to my mind before Labor Day.
