Canadian Thanksgiving is the second Monday in October and such a lovely tradition that we couldn’t wait to take part in. It turns out that the Canadian tradition has different beginnings from the US version and it marks the beginning of the harvest season in this part of the world.
We were lucky enough to spend our first thanksgiving in Whistler with 20 Australia friends who live in Vancouver. We stayed at the beautiful Fairmont Chateau where they go all out with pumpkin carving and a special dinner to celebrate the occasion. It really was the perfect way to enjoy this celebration, give thanks and enjoy the beginning of the magical Fall season in Canada.
