The background of Canadian Thanksgiving is very much close to the European and American traditions. The long time ago in the month of October, the early European people settled in North America and conducted celebrations of harvest and festivals of thanks. They celebrate the first Thanksgiving in 1578 in North America (Which is now Canada). European explorer Martin Frobisher safely reached and explored the new world in 1578. The Thanksgiving Day was held every year from 1879 with a theme as “Blessings of an abundant harvest” and its date was not fixed. This day is considered an official holiday since 1879 in Canada. In the year 1957, the Canadian government officially declared that this day will be celebrated on the second Monday of October so from since that time the Canadian Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in the month of October on its second Monday every year.
