The tradition of Thanksgiving originated with the harvest festival, an autumnal celebration meant to show appreciation for the bountiful harvest of the season. The first national Thanksgiving in Canada was celebrated in the Province of Canada in 1859. However, indigenous peoples in North America have a history of holding communal feasts in celebration of the fall harvest that predates the arrival of European settlers. The first Thanksgiving by Europeans in North America was held by Sir Martin Frobisher and his crew in the Eastern Arctic in 1578. This day has become a day for gathering the family to give thanks for their general well-being. Let us thank God for a wonderful and successful year and seek his blessings for another amazing year ahead. Best wishes on Thanksgiving to you.
