Are You Ready for This?
How'zit going eh? So let us tell you a little a'boat the difference in Thanksgivings between the Great White North, and the Excited States! Oh! This is one's going to be a beauty. So hold on to your kilo of back bacon, and get ready to ride the information toboggan.
What's the Difference?
Canada celebrates Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October while in USA it is the fourth Thursday in November. Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks for harvest by the pilgrim settlers and is not based on a historical date like Christmas. So, the entire world does not celebrate Thanksgiving and even those that do, frequently celebrate on different dates from the United States. Canada is a perfect example, eh!
Everything Happens in Canada FIRST!
Canada's Thanksgiving is based on a bountiful harvest of snowballs, beaver cheeks, maple syrup, and -do we need to say it- beer. It occurs earlier than the US Thanksgiving because Canada is north of the United States, and therefore the harvest season occurs earlier in the year. So, it only makes sense for Canada to celebrate its fall harvest during their fall and harvest time, but more importantly, you want to get as much food in you before the 8 month winter kicks in, 'cause you burn a lot of calories tightening the chords on your snow shoes. Well enough a'boat that eh! Let's grab the next dog sled and move on you hozers.
