Anyone care to enlightenment me on what Thanksgiving in Canada is all about? I never knew they had a thanksgiving.
Canadian thanksgiving is similar to the US version. A eurocentric celebration of the fall harvest, indicating a chance for winter survival in a harsh and unforgiving land. Occurs the 2nd Monday in October. Canada is cold, eh; so the harvest is earlier...
