Have you ever stopped to reflect on why Canada and the united states celebrate thanksgiving at different times. Being that today is Canadian thanksgiving I was wondering this so I did a little research into the subject for this post.

Both Canada and the United States have celebrated on different dates through out history. According to Wikipedia Canada’s observation of thanksgiving being earlier then the US falls in line with the fact that being that Canada is farther north then the US and the harvest season in Canada is generally complete earlier in the year then the US.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
