31 Day Blog Challenge – Day 29

Spring arrives and I always say this is my favorite time of year.  The dogwoods, then the azaleas, cook outs, porch living…

…and then Fall arrives and I’m just as enamored.

Hardy spices wafting through the year, crisp clear nights that inspire my soul and the feeling that spirits walk amongst us.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  I’m Canadian so it’s tradition in our mixed nation world to celebrate both.  The second Monday in October (Columbus Day) Canadian’s celebrate turkey day.  For me, it always symbolized the end of summer and that hockey season was about to kick into gear.

I always chuckle when people here tell me they didn’t know Canadian’s celebrated Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is directly related to the Harvest Festivals of Britain and Europe – a celebration that goes back to Pagan times that gives thanks for a bountiful harvest.

On Thursday, January 31, 1957, the Parliament of Canada proclaimed: A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.

To kick of the holiday season we usually celebrate Thanksgiving with my husband’s family.  One can never go wrong with two trips around the gravy bowl :)
