Source You know, even though I live in Vancouver, Canada, and we celebrate our Thanksgiving in October, I never feel in the Thanksgiving spirit until the American one rolls around. Weird how that works. I guess it's the power of marketing! The American Thanksgiving is marketed a lot more than the Canadian one, even in Canada! Probably this has something to do with good ol' Black Friday. Thanksgiving, of course, is about so much more than just the amazing deals. It's a time to be grateful for all that you have and are blessed with. This is something we could stand to do more than once a year, but at least once a year it's accompanied by amazing food too!
