That's right.  It's thanksgiving when it should be.  After mid-October we can't get out of our houses cause there's 10 feet of snow, so we have our celebrations a bit early.  Christmas is the day after Halloween, which is tomorrow.
Senior Member?  That's funny.

I have no idea what the actual history is... you have to think that basically Canadian and American culture/history is pretty similar until you got guys got uppity and we kicked your ass in that war.  But that's a long time ago!   I assume that it's just the same sort of thing, a sort of remembrance of a supposed historic event, but really, if we've got the day wrong, what the hell?  Typically Canadian, if we find an excuse to cook an animal and get drunk, we'll take it.  I'm thankful for this big cup of beer, and all this gravy...

Here is what I found.


In 1957, Parliament announced that on the second Monday in October that Thanksgiving would be "a day of general thanksgiving to almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed."

Unlike the American tradition of remembering Pilgrims and settling in the New World, Canadians give thanks for a successful harvest.

Hey,they are playing The Maple Leaf Forever!

Well at least til fall ;D I tried to find out the history of Thanksgiving in Canada,and quit after I found 3 sites with 3 different versions.So I have to guess that we are copying the US version,only have it earlier so that it looks like we thought of it first.Same with our Dominion day,it's on July 1st compared to July 4th in the US, only ours was about 90 years later.

We had a 24# Turkey last night,and shared it with my parents and my niece,who drove up from Squamish.Lots of leftovers for the next while,and Carla has a huge pot of soup boiling on the stove.

I'm hungry again.

Thanks for asking Tom,
Yes it's Thanksgiving and I can't begin to tell you all how much it hurt me to gobble gobble up that turkey and pumpkin pie knowing full well you folks to the South are doing without tonight.
So much food and so little table space!
Anyway your turn is coming and I'm grateful for what I have including our close relationship with our friends to the south.
Now if I can only make it to the couch.
:P

Actually, Kevin, we do without a lot less than you might think.  All year we practice so that we can handle the "big" table full on the holidays :D

It's the leftover's that make a dinner like that so special.  coming back a couple of hours later when the "pangs of hunger" again attack to make a cold turkey sandwich with mayo, salt, pepper and cranberry sauce.  Another spoonful of dressing from the bird is good too.  Man-n-n-n-n-n, I can hardly wait.  Y'all have my taste buds slapping the top of my mouth. :D :D

I just had a toasted turkey sandwich smothered in hot gravy and melted cheddar,with a pickle on the side.Had Pumkin pie covered in whipped cream for breakfast.More of the same tomorrow.

I think we might be having leftover turkey tonight.

No maple syrup,but it sounds like a good idea for Christmas.We had a bottle of that around here,and right after supper I would have a couple of big tablespoons,then a glass of cold milk.Good stuff!

You are doing well with your Canadian,I can't even detect a bit of a Floridian accent. :D

I celebrated CDN Thanksgiving last evening wit some friends that migrated south. Man did she cook a great bird, I got to do the carving.

I realy enjoyed it because I spend each Thanksgiving in deer camp.
