Canadians are Great

How do you get four slices of pumpkin pie in China before Thanksgiving?...You have some Canadians on your team. Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October, almost 6 weeks before their American counterparts. Since I know a couple of Canadians, I asked them why they celebrate the holiday so early. Here is their answer:

Since Thanksgiving is originally a harvest celebration, it only makes since that Canadians would celebrate the harvest early. The winters come earlier, so the harvest is sooner. Hopefully throughout the year we will continue to learn interesting tidbits about Canada. Stay tuned.
