The holiday may date back to Martin Frobisher's celebration of his voyage to find the Northwest Passage. Now, Thanksgiving is mostly seen as a celebration of the harvest and a day of gratitude. Canadian Thanksgiving, every second Monday of October, also happens to coincide with Indigenous Peoples' Day (and Columbus Day).
Many Canadians have taken to celebrating the holiday with a Thanksgiving meal on the night, or even weekend, before. Although Thanksgiving in Canada is not as big of a deal as it is in the United States, there are still some celebrities and other notable public figures observing and posting about the holiday on social media!
