Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian friends!
I hope all friends in the Great White North are having a lovely Thanksgiving celebration, surrounded by family and friends. I just plopped this year’s turkey in the oven *fingers crossed for a juicy turkey leg in about 4 hours*.
Over the weekend, I got to chatting with one of my high school friends who is now based in the UK and she was curious as to whether the Canadian Thanksgiving (CT) was a religious celebration. I did a poor job in explaining its origin/significance, but after some research I can add to the few sentences I gave: CT is a national holiday celebrated on the 2nd Monday in October in Canada; it celebrates the harvest and blessings of the previous years.
CT is as valued as the Christmas holiday, and you will find several people travel to other cities or even provinces to be with loved ones during this holiday. The main Thanksgiving dinner can be held any day during the long weekend, although I believe most families have theirs on Sunday, and is usually accompanied with turkey meals with stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, cranberry sauce and the what-not. A simple holiday, but a very necessary one!
Now on to my outfit, I like the fit of this straight length pants I have on. Its length is just right – hitting me at just above my ankle which makes it easy to pair with heels and flats without looking frumpy.
