Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend!

Unlike their neighbours south and north (Alaska) of the borders, Canadians observe Thanksgiving every year on the second Monday of October. On this day (or the day before), families and sometimes friends get together to celebrate the harvest and the blessings from the year before.

Of course, there is no celebration without food! The most common food served on Thanksgiving is roasted turkey with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie as dessert. Very tasty! However, if you don’t eat meat for whatever reasons, there is a substitute for turkey called “tofurkey”, and people constantly come up with new recipes and ideas.

This year, I am thankful for my family – past, present and future. What are you thankful for? What is your favourite holiday celebrated in your country? Why? Is there food involved in the celebration? Leave us a comment bellow with your answers.
