A Canadian Thanksgiving

This day may not be as big and flashy as the same holiday in the United States, and there is definitely no frantic shopping day tomorrow, but we Canadians love our own Thanksgiving celebrations.
Since 1957, we’ve been setting aside the second Monday in October as a national day of appreciation, although we have honored an annual Thanksgiving Day much further back into the 1800s.
For many of us, the 3-day weekend will be enjoyed with family and friends around a table loaded down with roasted turkey and all the fixin’s.
For others, this is a last chance for one last mini-vacation before the winter freezes us in.
You can spot us watching the usual football games and outside admiring the fall foliage.
Thanksgiving Day may only come once a year, but here in Canada the timing and weather are usually perfect.
