    Thanksgiving Day here in Canada

    Good morning everyone,

    It is the second Monday in October and that means it is Thanksgiving Day here in Canada. And we have plenty to be thankful for.

    To fellow Canadians here on the forum, Happy Thanksgiving.

    To my American friends here, I'll remember to send you similar greetings when it's your turn next month.

    Happy Thanksgiving Glenn.
    Do the Canadians celebrate the same way we do here in the USA with Turkey and family gatherings?

    Yes indeed, we all have lots to be thankful for...........

    Today is our Columbus Day (no big deal, in fact not a school holiday here in my county)

    Hi Andrea,

    Thank you for your Thanksgiving Day wishes.

    Yes, we celebrate the day with turkey dinners and family gatherings. For those who own cottages in our lake districts, this is usually the weekend when the cottages are prepared and closed for the upcoming winter. Water lines are drained and flushed, then anti-freeze poured in.

    For some Canadians, Thanksgiving means heading down to the US for some cross-border shopping.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all our fellow Canadians. We will be lucky enough to celebrate the US Thanksgiving in Aruba.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends!! I recently had a conversation on TA regarding how Canadians celebrated and whether or not they had turkey dinners! We are normally in Aruba for the holiday but we’re going to be in Vegas this year. The poster on TA was asking if Vegas would have any celebrations for Canadian Thanksgiving. Hopefully, they found a fun way to celebrate their day!!
