Thanksgiving may be a holiday that we share with our neighbours to the south, but the way we celebrate it is all our own. We don’t give thanks in November (October’s where it’s at!) and it’s not all about football, turkey pardoning and parades with Canadians. We simply like good friends, good family, and good food.
