A very happy Canadian Thanksgiving to everyone. I'm a Canadian, married to an American, and we now live in Canada. We celebrate both Thanksgivings. For the Canadian one we go to a local restaurant that serves a turkey dinner, and for the American one, Hubby, the cook in the family, cooks a turkey dinner here. How are you celebrating Thanksgiving this year?

Wow cool! I didn't know today was Canada's Thanksgiving Day. We raised our own turkey this year so we will be eating fresh organic turkey, we are all excited LOL I usually cook and it's just me and the husband and kids.

We could never raise our own turkey, or anything else that we would want to eat. I thought I was a softie when it comes to PETS, but my husband is an even bigger softie. if it's alive, and in our custody, it becomes our pet, we name it, and we can't eat it. :) I remember a holiday dinner at my Uncle Mac's house. I was enjoying the turkey, up until he told me that I probably saw "him running around in the driveway, when i got here." LOL

We raise all of our own chickens and turkeys for eating, that way we know what "goes into them". If the city would let me have cows and pigs we would have them too. I don't do any of the slaughtering, it all goes off to a slaughter house and I pick them up when they are done.

Hello my friend, in our country we have a lot of "thanksgiving day". When one of those comes we have different ways of celebrating unlike yours I knew, you cook mostly Turkey. Wow how I wish I could taste that menu, turkey. In our country turkey is expensive fowl bird and it very rare you see that on the table.. Well, most like whenever we have some big occasions not only thanksgiving, we usually prepare roast pig and I am living in the city where known for the delicious roast pig in our country....I already feel hungry of this subject we are talking... cheers!!

Very Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Day friend. You are maintaining unity in diversity. You eat turkey for both Canadian and American thanks giving days, that is unity. Eating at restaurant and home i.e. out side cooking and home cooking is the diversity. Enjoy yourself.

Happy Thanksgiving! (ok I'm a bit late) We did our Thanksgiving with the family last saturday. We had turkey dinner with potatoes, gravy, cranberries, freshbuns and carrots. We finished the meal with Cherry Cheese Cake. It was a bit different this year as my aunt and her two kids didnt come. Plus we did it saturday (so my sister and her husband could come) rather than the normal sunday.

Well well! Happy Thanksgiving to you too danish!! I find that very interesting how you're married to an american and living in canada and doing the things the way you two do! That's what a marriage is all about! Working it out and celebrating things together! I have this feeling you two will be together for a long long time!

Well, since I live in the USA our Thanksgiving is still not for over a month away. I have to work that day since I work for a company that is never closed so I am sure my husband will take me to work and then fix a nice Turkey dinner that we can eat when I get home. I Love turkey so I actually look forward to Thanksgiving each yr. and being Thankful for all that has happened to me over the yr. as well. Late Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you and hope you had a nice dinner.

I don't know, too much going on between now and the U.S.'s Thanksgiving to think about what I'm going to do...

Since the Thanksgiving celebration isn't until next month here, and we tend to make plans at the last minute, I am not sure what we are doing. I think I remember discussing it with my son, who lives an hour away in a new rental house that is large enough for the entire family, but I am not sure that his sisters will all travel there for dinner. They might have their own plans, and I haven't any idea which of them may have to work. We tend to play it by ear each year, not knowing who is doing things with the in-laws and who is working. A couple of years ago we had workers, and prepared and boxed dinners for those working so they could also have dinner! I will probably bye a turkey and take it wherever we end up and prepare it there and we will decide who is doing whatever else we want done.
