Canadian Jews and Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada.

Many of the “rituals” behind Canadian Thanksgiving are the same as for American Thanksgiving (family turkey dinners), but Thanksgiving is not nearly as big a deal in Canada as it is in the USA, and in any case it has stronger Anglo-Protestant undertones here than it does in the States.

My impression is that most Canadian Jews do not really “do” Thanksgiving. Even growing up in a minimally observant home, we didn’t really acknowledge it.

I am curious to know about the experiences of my fellow Canadian Jews (there are a few of us here…)
