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.
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.
