I know they don't celebrate it in Sweden - unless you have a American in the family

But, yes Sandy, Canada does celebrate it.  Just keep in mind that most of the country is further north so our harvest comes in a little sooner.  Canadian Thanksgiving coincides with Columbus Day in the U.S. 

Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving Day (Canadian French: Jour de l'Action de grĂ¢ce), occurring on the second Monday in October, is an annual Canadian holiday to give thanks at the close of the harvest season.

Their Thanksgiving is the day we usually celebrate Columbus Day here in the U.S.   They also Celebrate "Boxing Day the day after Christmas

Not all countries celebrate Halloween the way we observe it here in the U.S. either.

I can't get used to Thanksgiving being so late in the year.  Seems all your holidays roll together.  It is so much nicer being in October.  First of all, there is a better chance of good weather for the weekend.   (Okay so it usually rains on Brigden Fair)  Secondly, you get through Thanksgiving, gear up for Halloween, and then once all that is over, you can start thinking about Christmas without feeling guilty.   And you have two whole months left to shop and do all that other good stuff like baking cookies and cakes and such.

I tried to make a trip up yhat way a couple years ago. Couldn't find a motel room in three or four states. Ended up driving all the way home. People go up there in the fall to see the changing colours of leaves on the trees.
