I’m not Canadian. I live in a city known for brusk directness (you know, that Apple). Hockey frightens me. I have yet to enjoy the pleasure of Tim Horton's. In fact, I’ve only visited Canada twice. But despite the cultural gulf that separates us, there’s at least one thing I have in common with our northern neighbor: Thanksgiving.
Just like us, Canadians celebrate the harvest and other blessings of the past year every autumn. One of the only differences is that their day of gratitude is a little earlier. This year, Canadian families will gather together on Monday, October 9th. While I’m sure many of our Canadian readers already set their Thanksgiving menus, we have some last-minute inspiration. And for our U.S. readers, there's nothing wrong with giving thanks twice.
