Canada celebrates Thanksgiving

It’s the second Monday in October and for Canadians, that means Thanksgiving./p>

Whether or not you had a bountiful harvest – literal or metaphorical – over the last year, Thanksgiving provides one thing everyone can be thankful for if they’re lucky enough to have it: a long weekend in October.

Here are a few Canadians and Canada admirers sharing their Thanksgiving weekend on Twitter & Instagram.

First, the great actor William Shatner with a history lesson.

So before you denounce Canadian Thanksgiving just remember we started it 42 years before the Pilgrims. BTW 42 is the answer to everything.
