Happy Canadian Thanksgiving From The Chicago Files!

[courtesy of kidzworld.com]

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada.  American Thanksgiving is in November (on the 23rd this year).  As a dual citizen, I think I’ll celebrate both Thanksgivings!  I thought I would list a few things today as to why I am thankful for Canada (albeit it certainly isn’t an exhaustive list)! I’ll do the same in November for my thankfulness living here in the US of A!

O, Canada:

I am thankful for your easy-going nature;

I am thankful for your majestic beauty from the West Coast of British Columbia to the Eastern Province of Newfoundland;

I am thankful your politeness; it feels good to say,”please and thank you” and have it heard in return;

I am thankful for your community spirit, where helping one another is an intricate part of the Canadian culture;

I am thankful for your recognition and your embracing of the diversity of your people, and how much it means to have a ‘country of inclusion’; and

I am thankful for hockey, Tim Hortons coffee, and butter tarts!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada! I am incredibly proud to be a Canadian!
