Thanksgiving day is a holiday in Canada. This is on the second Monday in October. This holiday is for celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. We had a thanksgiving day on October 12 this year. We had a lot of traditional dishes. We had mashed potatoes with gravy, roast turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, beet leaf rolls, buns with butter and Greek salad, Caesar salad and ham. Also we had a pumpkin cheesecake and an apple pie. They were all delicious. We had a great day.
October 30 is Halloween. Many people enjoy Halloween. Many people wear the costumes and children go to trick-or-treating. We painted the bales and carved the pumpkins. That was my first time. We enjoyed that. At school, we were not able to wear costumes and have a party as usual because of COVID19. However, I could wear costumes at home on October 30. I was a cowgirl! I had a great Halloween day with my host family.
