Happy Thanksgiving to you too. :) It's rather early for US folks, but any time is perfect to be thankful. :)P.S. I was wondering the other day how the Canadian Thanksgiving came to be. Was it created in memory of some certain time? Or what? I hope you can help me out. :)
Hi Rebekah!I believe the first Thanksgiving that was celebrated in Canada took place when Martin Frobisher, an English explorer, arrived in Newfoundland in 1578. He wanted to give thanks for his safe arrival.This might sound strange since I live in Canada, but I actually didn't know the history of the first Canadian Thanksgiving until you asked the question. Then I realized that, though I knew all about the American Thanksgiving, I didn't know anything about the Canadian one! Crazy isn't it?
Thanks. I always enjoy learning tid-bits of information like this. :)
i didnt know this either??!! same as you,blessing counter, i only knewt he American thanksgiving story!!
