Nice, there's a center near us that Light's a Monstrous Christmas Tree, maybe 50ft, and it's tough seeing it sit there prior to the lighting, not sure when they first put it there. But I think they actually have a Lighting Ceremony and everything.
Gotta love Hats, Scarfs and Gloves, though I don't get much of an opportunity to wear em.

The Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of the month (the reason for the earlier date in October is their earlier harvest occurring farther to the north).
The Canadian holiday comes from different traditions although it is now meant to convey thanks for their harvest.

For me and my Family, Thanks Giving is the Time we all get together, generally at my Mom's House, and Have Turkey (My Mom used to make, now generally my Oldest Sister), Mashed Potatoes (I make), Coleslaw (Mom makes), Two Different kinds of Stuffing (I make), Peas, and some form of Cranberry Sauce, or Canned Cranberry. Sometimes Yams too, and generally a couple different types of Pies for Dessert. Generally a Fruit Pie (Such as Apple, Cherry or Boysenberry), and one or two Pumpkin Pies.
We don't exchange Gifts at Thanks Giving, but as we generally have Turkey on this day, we often have a different sort of food for Christmas. Sometimes Italian, some times Mexican (We order these awesome Chicken and Cheese Enchilada's).
And yes, we eat like there's no tomorrow, lol. Tons of Turkey Sandwiches the next week after too, they are awesome.
