RedDragon, actually, you are referring to American Thanksgiving. The story of the Pilgrims' settlement of the New World is an American Tradition. Canadian Thanksgiving is a holiday to celebrate a good harvest. It is in October in Canada because we harvest earlier in Canada than they do in the States. Americans are also celebrating the harvest, but the Pilgrim/New World thing is solely theirs.
