Did you know? Thanksgiving Day is a traditional celebration in the United States and Canada where family and friends gather around a feast to commemorate this special day; although it is true that traditions are very similar in both countries, here we list some of the differences:
The first difference is found in the day, since in the United States is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November and on the other hand in Canada it was established that would be the second Monday of October, as their geographic location in Canada the harvests are collected very early.
Canadian families often gather in their homes to taste between family and friends a delicious menu where could not be absent the famous turkey served in red cranberry sauce, servings of vegetables, green peas, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes; in some houses before dinner a prayer of thanks is performed. Special features of the Canadian menu are the desserts, which is very common to find apples or pumpkin pies.
Moreover in Canada very interesting activities are realized like the recreation of an authentic meal of Thanksgiving of 1800, where turkeys and pumpkin pies contests are organized. The “Share Thanksgiving” movement that aims to show to all foreigners living in Canada the origin and meaning of this holiday is carried out.
While it is true that each person can give different sense to this holiday, the “Thanksgiving Day” is the perfect occasion to thank regardless of religion or belief, language or origin, ideologies or boundaries. Simply give thanks for what we have and the opportunities that we have provided.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all our friends who have the privilege of living in this beautiful country!
