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.
