    • Hah I don’t know. I don’t know too much about Canadian history. BUT it is a true story that Canadians think their thanksgiving is the real thanksgiving. Ehm, USA started it!

  1. Thanksgiving was started in Canada by the Cree Indian Tribe in Alberta at Beaver Lake about 1863 to give thanks for the food and materials the got every year.

    So to say its an American thing is wrong.

      • That’s only what your being told by historians to make the American people feel better and think its theirs.

        It really started in Briton with the British harvest festival, but we don’t brag about it or make a big thing about it 🙂 and then the Pilgrims took it to America, so you have the British to thank.

      • BUT the British didn’t share their Harvest Festival with Indians.We started that part of it for real.
        I actually got my history degree in England and pretty much everyone agreed that it started in the good old USA. Hah I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one, huh? 😉

  2. I got my history degree in the university of life.

    America only shared their harvest with the Indians after they had killed 99% of them and then only enough to keep them alive.

    This is good isn’t it.

      • 1) I feel like I got a history lesson in this post/comments so I thank you. I would have NEVER looked up what the heck is up with Canadian Thanksgiving.
        B) My drama teacher was on How I met your mother recently. So someone I know met someone who PLAYS Barney in real life. That’s as close as I’ve got.

      • Hah that’s pretty close to a real Barney. I know, I had to really dig deep with my sweet history skills that I literally never use because honestly, who uses a history degree? But yeah, Canadian Thanksgiving..pshhh
