In Canada Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on 2nd Monday every October so our date is close to the original one.

@kev pipitone the indigenous people of the americas was apart of the idea of trade for thanksgiving , like the Bible was written 40 years after the death of Jesus so who knows!

Pray tell, who is the "expert" that verified this information. I am beginning to think that the folks who push these articles, are not as informed as they portray themselves to be.
