    喂喂 Ricker...誰說加拿大沒在過感恩節?

    講話憑良心呀

    身為加拿大人,實在是不得不站出來...

    加拿大還是最先有感恩節的哩...

    美國的感恩節是十一月的第四個星期四

    加拿大的感恩節是十月的第二個星期一

    美國感恩節由來,請參考此處網址:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving#Thanksgi...

    第一次北美大陸的感恩節為 1578年,也同樣是加拿大的最早感恩節年份

    美國的則是 1621年

    Thanksgiving is closely related to harvest festivals that had long been a traditional holiday in much of Europe. The first North American celebration of these festivals by Europeans was held in Newfoundland by the Frobisher Expedition in 1578. Another such festival occurred on December 4, 1619 when 38 colonists from Berkeley Parish in England disembarked in Virginia and gave thanks to God. Prior to this, there was also a Thanksgiving feast celebrated by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado (along with friendly Teya Indians) on 23 May 1541 in Texas's Palo Duro Canyon, to celebrate his expedition's discovery of food supplies. Some hold this to be the true first Thanksgiving in North America. Another such event occurred a quarter century later on September 8, 1565 in St. Augustine when Pedro Menendez de Aviles landed he and his men shared a feast with the natives.

    Most people recognize the first Thanksgiving as taking place on an unremembered date, sometime in the autumn of 1621, when the Pilgrims held a three-day feast to celebrate the bountiful harvest they reaped following their first winter in North America.

    Two American colonists have personal accounts of the 1621 Thanksgiving in Massachusetts:

    感恩節的意義:

    Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is an annual holiday celebrated in much of North America, generally observed as an expression of gratitude, usually to God. The most common view of its origin is that it was to give thanks to God for the bounty of the autumn harvest. In the United States, the holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. In Canada, where the harvest generally ends earlier in the year, the holiday is celebrated on the second Monday in October, which is observed as Columbus Day or protested as Indigenous Peoples Day in the United States.

    補充:小弟早上忙找資料兼修郵件伺服器,結果一不小心把兩個日期寫反了,不好意思,在此更正。(不過如果由我提供的連結連過去,你還是會看到正確的資料的)

    感恩節是美國的特有節日,也只有美國真正地在過,所以並不是加拿大和美國的感恩節不同一天,而是加拿大根本沒有真的在過感恩節,就像是我們只知道感恩節要吃火雞,但是我們的重點只是那隻火雞而已,而非去過感恩節真正的意義。參考看看囉。感謝各位兄臺的指正,可見小弟的訊息是有錯的,非常抱歉。
