Happy Thanksgiving !

Next Thursday 27th is Thanksgiving.

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest is all gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain.
So open wide the doorway-
Thanksgiving comes again!

Thanksgiving is a traditional festival in the United States and Canada.
In the United States it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, whereas in Canada it is celebrated on the second Monday of October.
