The holiday season is one of the most exciting times of year for Canadians. It’s a time when we can get together with family and friends, take a break from our hectic schedules, eat delicious food, and enjoy the beauty that only wintertime brings. However, it can also be a stressful time as well – especially if you’re travelling to another country. In this blog post I will discuss tips on how to have an amazing Thanksgiving in Canada!
What is Canada’s Thanksgiving called??
Canada’s harvest season is called Thanksgiving. It typically occurs in October and it coincides with the start of cooler temperatures, colourful leaves, shorter days (fall), and major holidays such as Halloween on Oct 31st. There are many ways to celebrate Canada’s Thanksgiving – one being a delicious dinner with family that includes turkey, stuffing or cranberry sauce, and all the trimmings.
What is Thanksgiving in Canada like?
Thanksgiving in Canada can be a great time to spend with family and friends while enjoying festivities that are distinctly Canadian. Some of these include attending an NHL game or cheering on your favourite team at one of the many CFL games across our country as well as going for long walks through the beautiful winter scenery. It’s also very common to find skating rinks set up throughout towns where you can skate around peacefully or try figure skating! Festive lights are decorated everywhere from homes, stores, gardens, windows – anywhere there might be an empty space during this season- so it would not surprise me if some people even decorate their car headlights! Canadians love celebrating Thanksgiving in their own way- and it can be a great time to introduce your friends or family members who are visiting Canada for the first time with some of our country’s traditions.
What should you pack?
Many Canadians believe that Thanksgiving is all about being together – enjoying each other company, laughter, food, drinks, games and conversation. This means packing clothes appropriate for any occasion might not be necessary as there may only be one event during this period where people will need them (such as an ice skating trip). It would make more sense to bring things like board games if they were travelling by car or bus; movies on DVD if they’re flying due to long flight hours; winter jackets/coats; gloves; hats; scarves; and any other garments that would be essential for the cold Canadian winter climate.
How many Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving?
More than half of all Canadians who were polled said they celebrated this holiday tradition meaning it is a popular time to come together with family, friends, or even enjoy some peace and quiet by themselves! It was also interesting to note how almost 80% of respondents had at least one relative in another country so travelling for this period can become more expensive. If you’re only visiting Canada during this season make sure to consider booking accommodations well in advance as prices will increase closer to November’s arrival!
Why do Canadians have Thanksgiving so early?
Due to our proximity to the international date line, Canada’s Thanksgiving is one of the earliest in this hemisphere. Other countries celebrate it a week or so later on November 28th and 29th. This means that Canadians can have their holiday earlier than most other places in order to take advantage of cooler temperatures during fall while still enjoying all the festivities!
What do Canadians eat for Thanksgiving?
Canada’s harvest season is called Thanksgiving- meaning many people enjoy turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy as well as other delicious foods that are very Canadian such as pumpkin pie with whipped cream (or maple syrup) on top! You may also see some dishes served at Turkey Trot events like mashed potatoes; green beans; corn; sweet potatoes (many people believe these were grown by Native-Americans); and maple syrup pie! …………………………………………………………………………………………………….
