There is nothing like the holidays to bring all the family together and share beautiful moments over delicious food. But with all the food allergies and special diets family and friends may have, it is harder and harder to plan a Thanksgiving meal that everyone can enjoy. I have you covered with lots of Thanksgiving Turkey and Stuffing recipes with options for all the dietary restrictions you may have to work around.
And with the holidays not far behind, these recipes will come in handy when you start planning your Christmas menu too.
American Thanksgiving VS Canadian Thanksgiving
I am in Canada and we celebrate Thanksgiving in early October. It is also not as much of a big deal here compared to the American Thanksgiving. With my immediate family, it is traditionally the weekend that we closed the cottage for the winter.
Because I am not American and my family makes a small affaire of it, you will find very few recipes on my blog for Thanksgiving. I do have one fun exception thought that I made years ago, check out this pretty neat Retro Aspic Green Bean Casserole.
The date is not the only element that separates the 2 countries celebration. Let’s explore them.
When do Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving? Canadian Thanksgiving is on the 2nd Monday of October, while American Thanksgiving is on the 4th Thursday of November.
So why do Canadians and Americans celebrate on different dates? Latitude and weather is the answer. Canada is considerably more north so the harvest season takes place a good many weeks before the Americans. Depending on where you are in America, the harvest can last a lot longer, particularly in the Southern States.
A few more differences
Canada only celebrates the bounty of the harvest, we do not have the association of the pilgrims, or sometimes religion, like in the US.
Americans will travel far and wide to spend Thanksgiving with family. This is not usually the case in Canada where Christmas takes priority.
Also, Canada does not have a Black Friday shopping frenzy. The internet is changing that, but in Canada, our big sale is on December 26th and is known as Boxing Day.
