Yes

Yes it's Thanksgiving in Canada, or more correctly, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day although I suspect most Thanksgiving turkeys are cooked and eaten today.

Happy Holiday to all us Canadians.

For those who aren't aware:

Canada celebrates Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October (usually when civil celebrations of either Columbus Day or Native American Day is in the US), and commemorates (rather than the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth and basically being saved by the Narrangassett First Nation) more of the traditions of Harvest Home festivals. (That said, it does have borrowing from American Thanksgiving traditions--largely from Tories who moved to Canada after the Revolution.)

But yes, Canada (being its own distinct country with its own traditions) does have Thanksgiving in October, around the time a lot of Midwestern states have Harvest Homecoming celebrations grin

Nah, they have better than loon

Actually, one of the things that is, well, a Thing with Canadian Thanksgiving is turducken (which involves, uh, stuffing a deboned chicken inside a deboned duck, which is stuffed into a deboned turkey, and the lot is stuffed with stuffing and is Utterly Delicious Even If It Would Give The Average Cardiologist A Heart Attack).

Other than a turducken (which not everyone does, mind) it's actually not too different than American Thanksgiving in practice. There is a Large Roasted Turkey (which may or may not have a duck and a chicken in it), cranberry sauce, etc. Usually there's a special CFL game and a special NHL game on.

The two biggies versus American Thanksgiving being that it's on a Monday (so a lot of folks treat it as a long weekend and have the Giant Bird of Eatin' on Sunday) and the Great Bargain Shopping Day Of The Year does not in fact start the day after Thanksgiving (the great Bargain Day for Commonwealth countries is Boxing Day, December 26th--the day after Christmas--originally named as that was a day for donations to the poor, not for someone punching someone else in the nose for the last Nintendo Switch in a store grin).

Yeah, Turducken. Ask Sam &

Yeah, Turducken.
Ask Sam & Dean from Supernatural, about the downside to this!

Oh yeah

Nothing like a slightly-brined turkey with some mashed potatoes and gravy. I can feel my cholesterol levels rising as I write this, anticipating the delicious meal.

Break out the rosemary, fresh garlic, and just a teeny, tiny bit of cumin. Yeah, Baby.

Actually, there is a Turducken flavor cat food, manufactured by Merrick, one of the better brands. It was the all-time favorite of one of our cats, now sadly passed.

A happy and safe Thanksgiving to all.

Happy Day everybody
