3,500 Great Illustrations to Celebrate Canada's Thanksgiving

In Canada, when we celebrate Thanksgiving as we will this weekend, there will be no kids dressed in Pilgrim costumes.  There will be no day off after to take advantage of the sales and get a jump start on our Christmas shopping.

These are among the few differences between the holiday here and the one celebrated south of the border.  However the intention behind this occasion is the same. It's about being thankful.

As our American counterparts do for their Thanksgiving, held on the fourth Thursday of November,  we will be roasting turkeys and baking pumpkin pies.  We will be gathering our families together to enjoy the holiday and express our gratitude for the many blessings in our lives.


Outdoor Thanksgiving decorations will reflect the colours and celebration of harvest with cornstalks, pumpkins, hay and mums. Inside the homes, tables and sideboards will be adorned with leaves, horns of plenty and gourds.

No matter where you live, you don't have to be a fan of autumn to appreciate this holiday. In Canada and the United States, it's a feast for the eyes, body and soul.  The time to reconnect with family, to kick back and watch football  (a CFL doubleheader here;  a trio of NFL games in America), to acknowledge  how fortunate we are to have what we have is invaluable.

As we reflect upon the holiday, those past and the one yet to enjoy, the images are of life and vitality. Just like these terrific Canadian-themed Thanksgiving illustrations:

Many schools already use products such as Google Classroom, Brightspace from D2L or Blackboard Learn but these are just a few examples of the Learning Management Systems (LMS) currently available.
