According to Wikipedia, Thanksgiving in Canada dates back to Martin Frobisher's 1578 voyage from England, in search of the Northwest Passage. He and some of his ships and crew, survived the journey, so they had much for which to be thankful.
Years later, French settlers crosing with Samuel de Champlain in 1604, also held feasts of thanks. There are many more celebrations of the harvest and safe passage and exact details get a little murky.
Suffice to say, I am not an intrepid explorer, nor a farmer, so my Thanksgiving involves much family and food. And thoughts.
I really am thankful for a few things, such as living in Canada and having family to spend time with. I am thankful that I live in a country where I can vote freely. With a Federal election looming, this is pretty important to me. I am thankful that I live in a country where opportunities abound and I am mostly limited by how hard I wish to work.
So, even though it is a holiday, I am at my computer, pumping out my Monday blog.
No earth-shattering pronouncements about business today except that if you are thinking of starting a new business, or changing jobs. All I can say is if you have educated yourself about the field and want to work really hard, the possibilities are there.
Take a chance and you, too, will be thankful.
