Happy Thanksgiving (Canada)

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day (Canadian French: Jour de l'Action de grâce), occurring on the second Monday in October, is an annual Canadian holiday which celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year.

On Thursday, January 31, 1957, the Canadian Parliament proclaimed:
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

It makes sense that Canada's Thanksgiving Day is well before the U.S. Thanksgiving Day... as it's generally a thanksgiving for the harvest, and the US harvest comes much later than the Canadian harvest, since the Canadian growing season is what?.... about 3 weeks or so, right? Bigwink
