Happy Thanksgiving

I always wondered why Canada has a Thanksgiving day in October and the USA has Thanksgiving in November.

I mean, why does Canada even have a "Thanksgiving" at all?

Well, I'm not for certain, but I've read that the main Thanksgiving festivals of today evolved from harvest festivals carried over from the Old World to the New World.

The idea is that pagan festivals from long ago evolved in Europe, then further evolved here in the USA and in Canada.

I may be wrong, so don't just take my word for it-- check behind me.

My intent is to be honest and accurate, but I could have come across poor information.

Or, I could just have poor understanding of what I read.

Regardless, Happy Thanksgiving!
