It’s not even Halloween, and I have turkey on the brain. As I sit here daydreaming of next month’s Thanksgiving feast, our neighbors to the north are spending today watching football, parades, devouring delectable food and giving thanks with friends and family. That’s right, while some of us in America have Monday off for Columbus Day, it’s Thanksgiving in Canada, signifying the close of the harvest season. Similar to American traditions, Canadians decorate for Thanksgiving with pumpkins, corn, wheat sheaves, gourds and other seasonal decor. I know, I know. I’ve been filling your minds with Christmas decor and now I’m on a Thanksgiving kick, but can you blame me? So, here’s a taste of some gorgeous Thanksgiving inspiration. It is fall after all, so I’m not entirely off base. (And Happy Thanksgiving, Canada. Enjoy your football and feasting!)
