Have a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day in Canada is celebrated on the second Monday in October. This annual holiday is celebrated to express gratitude for the previous year’s blessings. It was first celebrated in the year 1957 when the Parliament of Canada made this proclamation:

“A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.”

In most parts of Canada, this is a statutory holiday. However, there are some places where it’s an optional holiday like in the New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Atlantic Provinces of Prince Edward Island. This holiday is similar to the one celebrated in the United States. It also corresponds to the Harvest Festival in England and continental Europe.

Just like in the United States, there are many traditions practiced to celebrate this day. These include parades, football games, parties, picnics, and many more. One of the most popular parades is The Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest parade, which is broadcasted on national TV. As for the football game, the Canadian Football League holds a nationally televised game every Thanksgiving Day.

Even though this holiday is on a Monday, many Canadians opt to start the celebration during the weekend. Families get together at home, or take a trip somewhere during the Thanksgiving weekend.
