Thanksgiving in the U.S. may be a time for homecomings, but not everyone can make it back for the November holiday -- which leaves many expats wondering how they can celebrate this American tradition elsewhere.

Thanksgiving should be celebrated worldwide. Strictly as a day to give thanks for all we have. Not to commemorate any USA history.

The American Thanksgiving is steeped in tradition and was set on Nov. 28 by one of the Presidents. In Canada, our Thanksgiving is earlier, as in most of Canada there is no snow yet. Our pumpkins have to frost on them yet (ha!), if we waited until the end of November, the fields have been cleared for a long time, as well as our produce. I believe ours is more the celebrating thanks for the fruits of our labor.
Thank You Cher.

The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1578 in Newfoundland (now a Canadian province).
It certainly does celebrate the fruits of our labour, especially in the garden that has been harvested. Mine is now under snow and some icicles. Plus that fact the Canadian version gives us more of a breather between the amount of time given in travelling during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Since Canada is a multi-cultural nation, we often see other cultures/nationalities celebrate their many holidays here.

Personally I don't car about this holiday even though I live int he US. I find it gross thought that it is called Turkey Day. IT centers that whole holiday around the killing of millions of birds. These birds are not treated well and suffer until death happens to them. A holiday should center around happy things and not the killing of birds.
