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.
