If you're Canadian and Jewish, your stomach might resemble a roller coaster.
Over the long weekend, you had Yom Kippur (day of fasting) from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, and then Thanksgiving Sunday and Monday. Oy vey, eh!
Seriously, Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian readers. Canada celebrates its Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October. A few in the United States also have today off for Columbus Day.
Canadians eat pretty much what Americans eat for Thanksgiving. Canadians are more likely to eat more wild animals (elk) than we do, but the basic menu is the same. Like the U.S. Thanksgiving, Canadians also celebrate with football on TV.
If you share lineage in both the United States and Canada, you can enjoy both Thanksgiving celebrations.
Sharing a Canadian Thanksgiving makes you appreciate the commonality between the two countries (as exemplified in our sister blog, CanadianCrossing.com), especially when it comes to food. And the weather is a lot nicer when Canada celebrates the festive holiday.
