In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October. On this day, we celebrate our blessings and everything we are thankful and grateful for, especially loved ones. Many celebrate with lots of food and spending time, either in person or virtually, with family and friends.  

With Autumn here, the leaves are beginning to turn colour and plants and animals are preparing for winter. It is also a wonderful time of year to explore and appreciate nature.
