I will be the first to wish all Canadians on FSU a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your Thanksgiving week-end, however you might be spending it. Beautiful weather is forecasted for Southwestern Ontario and my family has planned a couple of hikes to enjoy the weather and the start of the autumn colour.

I am planning to brine a turkey for the first time. Fingers crossed that it turns out OK.

I found out yesterday I have the three days off. Didn't expect it, so I suppose I will cut the lawns and sleep. A family member says she will be bringing a turkey on Monday so I don't even have to shop.

Good luck on cooking your first turkey algonquin. It will taste wonderful.

Happy Thanksgiving all.

Happy Thanksgiving! And kudos for picking the harvest season as a time to have it.

What food traditions are common for Thanksgiving dinner in Canada? Turkey? Cranberry Sauce? Pumpkin Pie? (I have heard from friends living overseas during the holidays that cranberry sauce is liked by the locals, turkey is considered weird, and pumpkin pie is right up there with the general American take on Vegemite.)

The Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 2nd Monday in October and in the calendar of the Anglican Church of Canada the Sunday of the same weekend is Harvest Thanksgiving Sunday. Churches tend to be decorated with the fruits (& vegetables) of the harvest and often autumn leaves are included. In my experience, we tend to eat turkey with dressing/stuffing and cranberry sauce/relish and to have pumpkin pie for dessert.
