I am not familiar with what Canadian's Thanksgiving commemorates.
In the US, it was a celebration of the early settler's survival in tough
times thanks to the local American Indians, and their thanks to God.

What is the Canadian Thanksgiving based around?

It is really, simply the same as US Thanksgiving. How it carried into Canada is
a mystery to me, perhaps brought by Loyalists who left the US during/after the
Revolution. The Canadian date remains in October, whereas the US Thankgiving
moved to November earlier in the 20th c.

Cheers,
Alan

Just listening to CBC 1 on the radio and of course, they're claiming
it was an end of harvest celebration that began in Canada and it got
transferred to US. It came later in the US because in most parts of
the country their harvest is 30 days later than ours.

Standard Canadian history has it that Canadian Thanksgiving was first
celebrated by Martin Frobisher in the late 1500's. Of course, it was
held in what is now Newfoundland which did not become part of Canada
until 1949 or so. So maybe we can't count that one.

Martin was English. This being Canada, the French also lay claim to
having established the tradition with Samuel de Champlain (Maudit
Anglais!), around the same time, sharing their bounty with the natives.
Now they just dam their rivers to make hydroelectric power. But that's
for another day.

American aspects of the holiday came to Canada with those Americans
still loyal to the King who got the hell out during the Revolution.

Canadians celebrate the harvest; Americans celebrate the arrival of the
pilgrims or something.

Now, off to hoover down my traditional Thanksgiving vegetarian lasagna,
followed by a few rounds of Bowmore Mariner. I'm 1/4 Sami, so I figger I
can forgo all that turkey junk and eat and drink whatever the hell I
want. 'Sides, it's a whole lot easier to harvest tomatoes than turkeys.

Cheers!

I liked the southpark version. Hey we want your land get lost, kids kick
crap out of other kids dressed as natives.
