    Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!!! I would love to have Thanksgiving in Oct. and leave it to more family oriented traditions instead of the Black Friday push and shove event that now exists! Oh, well, for me and my family we enjoy the food and spending time with each other playing games and learning what is going on in each others lives!!

    Thanksgiving to me means family and tradition. Our parents are gone and it’s hard to believe we are now at the top of the living family tree. Family celebrations now consist of 4 children(now adults), 2 son-in-laws and six grandchildren. They are our blessings. Traditions are the recipes passed down from other generations. There are no family fights like you see on TV. And speaking of TV, there are no football games. And if I were to have a perfect Thanksgiving, I don’t have to wash the dishes and I can put my feet up so I can crochet my latest WIP.

    I was born and raised in England and when I first heard about Thanksgiving I realized it was actually what we called ‘harvest festival’ or giving thanks for a harvest safely gathered in. Don’t forget that back in those days a good harvest meant the difference between life and death by starvation. I too love Thanksgiving but wish it was in October too, like you guys. Black Friday is a horrible day and spoils Thanksgiving for a lot of families. To our Canadian Friends, have a great day of thanks.

    I wish our Thanksgiving holiday was in October. It has become too commercialized since it is so close to Christmas. It’s all about “Black Friday” the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping.

    Happy Thanksgiving Dan and Mike! Wish we celebrated in Oct as we’ve cancelled some family get togethers for Thanksgiving because of snowstorms here in Minnesota.

    Lovely article Mikey….I’m happily married to a Canadian & Although he was a young man of 11 yrs old, & I was 10 when he & his wonderful family left Canada & moved to the same street I lived on, I enjoyed getting to know this amazing family & learning about their Candian traditions. Eventually we married & raised three (half) Canadian children of our own, we have instilled some of those traditions along with our American traditions. Now we have 6 Grand children, & they love hearing about how me & their Grandfather met when we were kids not much older than some of them, which makes my heart smile. I Have been crocheting for many yrs. since my teens, and it’s always been one of my favorite passions!

    Being born a Canadian and now a naturalized American, I get the best of both worlds! I love how things are closed in Canada and it’s all about family, small traditions that touch the heart! I also appreciate the chance to join in the giving aspect down here in Florida. We do big church and family gatherings, make baskets to bring to under privileged families and see it as the opening of the Christmas season. It is more commercial here, but it’s not like you have to shop, lol!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all y’all!

    Happy Thanksgiving Mikey and Daniel and to my Grandson Caelen and his Mother Tamara. They live in Toronto. I always forget that October is when you celebrate. Sometimes I wish we did too. Especially when the weather is bad and family can’t get together. Hope you have a wonderful holiday and an enjoyable meal filled with thankfulness and peace.

    Sorry… this is confusing. I clicked on a link that Mikey posted about the Canadian Thanksgiving and a free pattern thinking I would find a pattern here. All I see is the article telling me about the holiday, but cannot see a free pattern. (PS – Happy Thanksgiving, Mikey and Daniel)

    Thank you for your info! My daughter & husband live in Montreal and because of the time difference between US & Canadian Thanksgivings, we choose to concentrate our efforts on being together for Christmas instead, alternating our celebrations yearly between the US, Montreal, and her in-laws in Ontario. So appreciate all your efforts, Mikey!
