This is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, a three-day weekend and a chance for most of us to get together with family and friends and to give thanks for the blessings of the past year.

Some cool facts about Canadian Thanksgiving:

Although the date for Canada痴 Thanksgiving was not firmly set on the second Monday of October until 31 Jan 1957, it had been celebrated here for even longer than in the US. The date was established by Parliament in keeping with our fall season and the earlier onset of winter.

Canadian Thanksgiving draws on 4 traditions:

The first is harvest celebrations in European peasant societies for which the symbol was the cornucopia (horn of plenty).

The second is First Nations celebrations of "the three sisters" (i.e., beans, corn, and squash) during the fall harvest.

The third is the almost forgotten tradition started by the explorer Martin Frobisher in the eastern Arctic in 1578, when he gave formal thanks for his safe journey.

The fourth is the Pilgrims' celebration of their first harvest in Massachusetts in 1621, from which we adopted the traditional menu of turkey, squash and pumpkin.

To my Canadian visitors: Happy Thanksgiving and to everyone: thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend and week to come.

Hello Silke,
there you got before the lens a beautiful copy
with wonderful colors and fantastischen details. Those are wonderful Krbis always with its colors at autumn remind. A fantastisches picture
Love of greetings to Canada.

Hello Silke,
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
Here that is no tradition, I don't know why...
As I understand the thanks is for the crop mainly, and more specific harvest given by the New Homeland! Well we've been staying here for ages and I have never heard of any European contry celebrating Thanksgiving in particular and why the heck am I blabbering about this...
I like your harvest photograph!
Pablo -

magnifique et originale pr駸entation, bon cadrage, couleurs jolies et nettes*
excellent travail, bravo

Hi Silke, I hope your Thanksgiving was peaceful. I like the composition. Good colour and fine detail. We don't have Thanksgiving down here but some towns (and Churches) have a harvest festival, I guess that is the same thing. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on 舛limate Change

Hi Silke,

Happy thanksgiving! . .
During this month is a custom in Indonesia to make a sweet desert with this pumpkin . .
Well captured and presented nicely with the frame . .
Useful note . .


Many thanks for your kind words on Lovely Monday .

First thanks for the info - last time in Canada we did not get a sattisfying answer about why sooner then in the US and why beginning of October.
A lovely picture to illustrate this time of year - farmstalls in our neighbourhood also have lots of pumpkins for sale.
:)follow Tuesday

Hi Silke, I like a lot your lovely simple composition with graet sharpness and splendid colors, ciao Silvio

Nice composition Silke and a very good colour.
Gr Jos

It's comming. I like the detail who appear to be just as you walk and ... Hey! Look at this...
Some persons do a lot of work with ornaments...
But i jump as i go on the Canadian Tire for a little things... They already show Christmas Tree at the entrance! Come on!!

It's true you put the accent on the final... Yep i enjoy cooking with the last family of the garden... It represent well in a very simple way the end of the final harvest!

Hi Silke,
Love the fall photo, the pumpkin and corn stalks so typical decoration for this time of year. I hope yours was a Happy Thanksgiving :o) TFS

Hi Silke, nice image for Thanks Giving Day. I hope you had a pleasant one with your family.

Well done and nice composition with the pumpkin by the dry corn! Yan :)
