Canadian Thanksgiving

I believe Thanksgiving in Canada is next Monday, October 11th. I’m super jealous that our Canadian friends get to have their Thanksgiving meal a month before us Americans.

To our Canadian friends, I wish you guys and gals a happy Thanksgiving! What food will you be having that day? I’m always interested to hear about what various groups of people eat on holidays.

I don’t think my family is doing anything this Thanksgiving. My sister usually puts it on, but she’s to burned out from work to deal with it

Looks like a turkey TV dinner for one LOL

My mom is from Canada, so we used to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving AND American Thanksgiving. It was fun.

My mom doesn’t celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, anymore. She’s really mentally unwell and pushed most of her family and friends away.

But it was fun, when I was younger.

Was the food you ate on both holidays similar? Or was one slightly different? I suppose I’m not entirely sure what the traditional Canadian Thanksgiving feast is comprised of

Happy early Thanksgiving, @Cragger. Sorry you can’t have a great meal with family, but it happens, I understand. Enjoy your day next Monday

Thanks @Tulane . My sister and I are going out for lunch on Friday, so it’s kind of sort of like Thanksgiving… Not really but you know what I mean

Yep, same/similar foods!! But I’ve never been in Canada during Canadian Thanksgiving, so I’m not sure if there are differences that my mom just didn’t care enough to follow?

For my family, though, it was turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, brussel sprouts, etc, for both!

I’m Canadian, and I think the Traditions are very very similar. We always have turkey, ham, corn, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. With lots of gravy of course

I’m going back to Vancouver for Thanksgiving. Spending a couple days downtown with friends then heading to my parent’s place for dinner on the Sunday
