Canada tends to run in lock-step with the US – so much so, that when the Elephant sneezes, we often catch a cold. Given that both Canada and the US were born as colonies of the British Empire, it’s not surprising that we share many fundamental beliefs and traditions. Even our national holidays, by and large, fall on the same calendar date.
Thanksgiving though, is one exception. Here in Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October – a date established in 1957, following years of flip-flopping between dates in both October, and November.
Since today is the second Monday in October, and Thanksgiving Day here in Canada, I’d like to take the opportunity to extend best wishes to my Canadian friends.
