Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated on the second Monday of October each year, and it’s an official statutory holiday – except in PEI, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia – however federally regulated institutions do observe Thanksgiving in those provinces too. In the US thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday in November.

The original idea is to give thanks for the past harvest season but for many Canadian families the tradition has changed over time and the focus is now to get together with the family and eat a large turkey dinner. Apple cider is a must for any traditional thanksgiving celebration as well as turkey stuffing and pumpkin pie.
