    Happy Thanksgiving John and to all the other Canucks on BTP.
    This will be the first year where there will not be a hoard of people in the house for dinner.

    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. As a tradition I will link to wiki.
    In Canada
    Main article: Thanksgiving (Canada)
    While some researchers state that “there is no compelling narrative of the origins of the Canadian Thanksgiving day”,[4] the first Canadian Thanksgiving is often traced back to 1578 and the explorer Martin Frobisher. Frobisher, who had been trying to find a northern passage to the Pacific Ocean, held his Thanksgiving celebration not for harvest but in thanks for surviving the long journey from England through the perils of storms and icebergs. On his third and final voyage to the far north, Frobisher held a formal ceremony in Frobisher Bay in Baffin Island (present-day Nunavut) to give thanks to God and in a service ministered by the preacher Robert Wolfall they celebrated Communion.[5]

    The origins of Canadian Thanksgiving are also sometimes traced to the French settlers who came to New France with explorer Samuel de Champlain in the early 17th century, who celebrated their successful harvests. The French settlers in the area typically had feasts at the end of the harvest season and continued throughout the winter season, even sharing food with the indigenous peoples of the area.

    As settlers arrived in Canada from New England, late autumn Thanksgiving celebrations became common. New immigrants into the country—such as the Irish, Scottish, and Germans—also added their own traditions to the harvest celebrations. Most of the US aspects of Thanksgiving (such as the turkey), were incorporated when United Empire Loyalists began to flee from the United States during the American Revolution and settled in Canada.[6]

    Thanksgiving is now a statutory holiday in most jurisdictions of Canada, with the exception of the Atlantic provinces of Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all as well. We are hosting some of the kids and grandkids but sadly a couple will be missing this year. I don’t think the ham will last long, nor the pumpkin pie either.

    I’m looking forward to our American Thanksgiving. I love turkey and dressing but I only seem to get it at Thanksgiving.
