By the way - this weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. Now I kinda know the historic foundations of the whole American holiday which occurs a month later because of a huge climate difference.
Basically this holiday is about giving thanks for the fall harvest, a thanks to our planet earth for providing us with life sustaining food. The other essentials of life are air, water and a roof.
And hopefully living through this Pandemic.
