Canadian Thanksgiving…Cheers to Family and Friends

Thanksgiving Colours
As the fall colours explode with abundance, even a “colour blind” person like me can see the wonderful contrast that autumn’s magic brings to our countryside. Naturally boulevards in the urban centres are beautified as well, but the magnificence of colour in autumn is certainly best experiences by a ride through the hills of any rural area, or a boat ride along the shores of the lakes and rivers of Canada. It is a time of thanksgiving. A time when family and friends get together for their favourite feast. Canadians tend to lean towards Turkey with all the fixings. It is a time that is caught between seasons, as we say farewell to summer past and enter into the autumn season. Oktoberfests abound, closing golf events, students home from their paces of study with family, families reuniting, new neighbours getting to know one another and a pause to just catch up with family and friends. So a toast to one and all to a great Canadian thanksgiving. Enjoy this time with family and friends. Cheers ! @MolsonFerg

Family Day Weekend

Greetings to you and yours on this early Sunday morning (ET) of what is known in three provinces in Canada as “Family Day Weekend”. Tomorrow is a day granted as a statuatory holiday to spend time with family, recharge batteries, take in the art gallery, museum, local fascination that you’ve never seen before. Since I’m in Detroit at a hockey tournament with my son’s Midget Junior team I note that it is also “President’s Day” tomorrow, being the third Monday of February and marking a holiday in the US. Like in Canada it is perhaps one of those days to just be home to spend time with family and friends and enjoy the day in what ever special way you might have in mind for you and the family. Some may travel, some may catch up, some may get their place straightened out in aniticipation of spring around the corner. Regardless it is a reminder for us (for me anyway) that all we do is really about family. So a toast to you and yours on this family day weekend in Ontario Canada. May you enjoy being with those around you or just connecting with those in your family that may be distant but just a phone call or click away. Cheers…and how will you be spending your family day weekend ? @MolsonFerg
