Thanksgiving Day in Canada falls on the second Monday of October every year. It is a national holiday where all businesses are closed, and employees have the liberty to repudiate any work legally on that day. Whereas public transports follow a tight schedule, if any.
Thanksgiving is prominent for family gatherings over dinner, where roast turkey is prepared in nigh every household, along with other seasonal produce. Families of non-European descent, however, may deflect from the traditional meals, and have other repasts, instead. The three-day vacation of the Thanksgiving weekend is also a great chance for people to travel or have a short break in their holiday homes; to enjoy the warm autumn weather and its dazzling colors.
