Happy Thanksgiving Canada
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in in 1578 when Martin Forbisher landed in Canada. He wanted to give Thanks for his safe arrival to a new world. Not to slight my fellow Americans, but this means that Thanksgiving was celebrated long before the pilgrims landed in Massachusetts.
Over the years, the date of this holiday has changed, beginning in November and in 1957 it was passed that Thanksgiving would be on the second Monday of October.
"A day of general thanksgiving to almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed." (Canadian Parliament)
