Six reasons why celebrating American Thanksgiving is even better in Canada

For envious Canadians or Americans stuck up here in the frozen North, the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday can seem, from the outside looking in, like a bit of a dream come true. To get the same four-day long weekend many Americans enjoy you’d have to use up a vacation day (or two). Even Canadian Thanksgiving isn’t an official holiday in Nova Scotia, P.E.I., and Newfoundland & Labrador.

But fear not: you can still enjoy yourself celebrating a second Thanksgiving this year. In fact, I dare you to go out and have even more fun enjoying American Thanksgiving in Canada than at your own traditional family get-together.
