Happy Thanksgiving!

This weekend I'll be busy celebrating Thanksgiving (the Canadian version!)
Many people might wonder why on Earth we don't have the same Thanksgiving Day as the United States. Well, our harvest comes earlier in the year! Originally, the Canadian Parliament set aside November 6th for annual Thanksgiving observances in 1879. In 1957, the date was shifted to an earlier day, the second Monday in October.
I hope all of my Canadian friends have a very happy Thanksgiving filled with lots of family, love, and yummy food!
