Happy Thanksgiving!

Junior Arithmetic.  Grade Two.  Toronto:  W.J. Gage & Co., 1948.

While Thanksgiving was officially proclaimed as a celebration in Canada in 1879,  it has only been since 1957 that the date was set as the second Monday in October (in contrast with the U.S., where it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November).
