Happy ThanksgivingCanadian Thanksgiving 2015 Overview

Like the United States, Canada gives thanks for its good fortune once a year and eats itself silly with turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes.

Whereas American Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, in Canada the second Monday of October is a statutory, or public, holiday.

This year, Canadian Thanksgiving falls on Monday, Oct 12, 2015.

The Canadian Thanksgiving holiday is officially observed on the second Monday of October, however people generally get together for their Thanksgiving meal on any one of the three days of this three-day holiday weekend.

Although Canadians do tend to get together on Thanksgiving weekend, the holiday is not as big a celebration in Canada as it is in the U.S., where Thanksgiving is the year's biggest holiday occasion.
