Wherever you are, whatever your job is, enjoy the turkey dinner or whatever it is you will be eating. Very Happy

Pretty much the same as our cousins to the south. Food and family.

I think it was originally a harvest festival (featuring food and family Smile ). Which would make it logical that it's earlier in Canada than in the States.

I just finished digesting the mountain of turkey that was served up on Monday. The crazy thing was, it was SO nice in my neck of the woods in Canada that the whole family went swimming in the lake. Now, normally this is NOT how we Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving, but it was a pile of fun!

... most Canadians live below the 49th parallel and the harvest times don't differ THAT much between Canada and the US (5-6 weeks between Canadian Thanksgiving and US)
Here's the wiki information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving
