Canadians are smart. They get the feast out of the way-digest their food and THEN start Christmas
shopping. :)

I always thought American's Thanksgiving is at the end of Nov- as you say Maureen only just before Christmas.  ;D

It is,Carol-the 4th Thursday of November.  I've now lived in the US longer than I lived in Canada and it still seems odd.

My family in the USA celebrate American Thanksgiving, then they put up the Christmas tree!!   Don't forget the Black Friday shopping!!   :) :) :) :)

The end of November in Canada is not the best as far as weather is concerned...not much to be thankful for :).  Better for us to celebrate in October and enjoy the lovely Fall colours.

Our Thanksgiving more closely aligns with the actual harvest time, rather than a date chosen to be thankful for arriving safely in the new world.

Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canucks!

Yes, better for us to celebrate in October as frost free pumpkins make for the best pies. ;D
