Thread Name: BS: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
I always supposed that Canadian Thanksgiving was a 'version' of the British 'Harvest Thanksgiving'. Britain celebrates it around the same time, but without a fixed dated. Most of the churches and chapels have their harvest festival on one of the first two Sundays in October.
