Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Valued Friends, Family and Clients
Why do Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on different days?
One reason for Canadian Thanksgiving arriving earlier than its American counterpart is that Canada is geographically further north than the United States, causing the Canadian harvest season to arrive earlier than the American harvest season. And since Thanksgiving for Canadians is more about giving thanks for the harvest season than the arrival of pilgrims, it makes sense to celebrate the holiday in October. So what are the differences between Canadian and American Thanksgiving, other than the date? Not much! Both Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with parades, family gatherings, pumpkin pie and a whole lot of turkey!
What will you be doing to celebrate Thanksgiving this year?
We’re looking forward to a great dinner with our family visiting from Vancouver and are very grateful for our valued friends, family and clients.
