    Smile due to/owing to/thanks to

    I came back not due to/owing to/thanks to the rain, but because I was tired.


    Do all the three phrases fit in the above context and mean the same? Thanks.

    Re: due to/owing to/thanks to

    Yes, though "thanks to" is the least happy phrase in this structure.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    But would you mind explaining in a few words why thanks to is the least happy phrase?
