Thanksgiving was celebrated for the first time in Canada in 1578 when English explorer Martin Frobisher threw a celebratory feast in Newfoundland to commemorate his safe arrival to North America.
The original dinner thrown by Martin Frobisher came about because of the ancient festivities in Europe that were meant to celebrate the abundance of the fall harvest and to give thanks for having enough food to last all winter long. The tradition has been carried on into modern times and has become the Canadian Thanksgiving that we know and love. Pretty cool eh?..
