"A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest
with which Canada has been blessed - to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October."
Yes indeed! It is the Thanksgiving Long Weekend, which many Canadians look forward to each year, in order to "be thankful for the past harvest and praying for the coming year". A day that many cherish for the grand 'feamily feast' and 'trukey', where they bask in joy in the family reunion!
As per the tradition, family members gather around the dinning table and offer their prayers to the Almightly for the harvest producers! This is followed by a grand meal consisting of: Stuffed roasted turkey, Pumpkin Pie, Corn, Beans, Cranberry Sauce, etc.

As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we're poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We're wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you've got;
Realize it's a lot,
And you'll make all your cares go away.
