September 30th, 2008, 09:34 AM #1Canadian Thanksgiving - How Popular Is It?
I've noticed that it is celebrated roughly a month and a half* before the U.S. one, and am wondering whether it is as popular a holiday in Canada as the Thanksgiving Day is in the U.S.A. I do know that it has different roots. But is it as popular in Canada? And do Canada-targeting affiliates see an increased demand for anything in particular (that can be tied to the Canadian Thanksgiving) this time of the year?
*This year it's on Monday, October 13th

Geno the only thing that sells for Thanksgiving is Turkey. It is nothing like what happens in the USA

It's a very popular holiday for Canadians, but it's more of a gathering time for friends and families and is not considered a "kick-off" to the holiday shopping season like it seems to be in the U.S.... probably because of the timing.

I'm in Canada and I'd definitely agree with PaulS and kse. I love Thanksgiving, but it's all about food and family. Other than that people aren't interested in buying anything. Halloween is definitely bigger than Thanksgiving.Heather Boulding

I am also based in Canada and retailers don't comercialize Thanksgiving as they do in USA. They are more into Halloween these days.
