Today is Canada’s Thanksgiving Day.
Not only are they first in our current calendar, what with October being before November, but they are also first in when they trace their holiday roots.
Yes, they harken their first Thanksgiving back to 1576 ( Martin Frobisher at Baffin Island) and/ or 1606 (Samuel Champlain and the Order of Good Cheer). Sorry, Berkeley Plantation – both of these dates are before 1619. Still not the first.
And the Canadians also invented American football…
and what’s a holiday without a little music?
