History of Canadian Thanksgiving

On Thanksgiving, Canadians give thanks for a successful year and harvest.

The Thanksgiving holiday tradition in Canada dates back to when the English explorer, Martin Frobisher, came upon the land we now know as Canada while searching for a Northern passage to the Orient.

When Frobisher settled in Canada, he held a formal ceremony where he gave thanks for surviving the long journey.

Thanksgiving became a nationally recognised holiday in Canada in 1879.

Today, it is celebrated by gathering with loved ones and preparing the Thanksgiving Day meal, which usually includes turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and many other dishes.

Here is a link to take a deep dive into this holiday.

Honestly, my bonus daughter makes the best Swedish style cinnamon roles and that is just not because my mother in love thinks so. It’s because it is true. Her buns are famous in the family and treated like a treasure. If you’re lucky enough to get a batch you freeze them, serve them to your best guests, and threaten anyone who comes near them. I haven’t asked for the recipe. I don’t need the recipe. I’ve got her! Her mother taught her well. But for the rest of you, here’s a video and recipes.
