Thanksgiving ((フランス語:Action de grâce)), or Thanksgiving Day (''フランス語:Jour de l'action de grâce'') is an annual Canadian holiday, occurring on the second Monday in October, which celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year.
Thanksgiving has been officially celebrated as an annual holiday in Canada since 6 November 1879, when Parliament declared a national day of thanksgiving.〔(Thanksgiving Day ), Canadian Encyclopedia〕 The date, however, was not fixed, and moved earlier and later in the year, though it was commonly the third Monday in October.〔
On Thursday, January 31, 1957, the Parliament of Canada made a proclamation stating:
"A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October."
==As statutory holiday==
Thanksgiving is a statutory holiday in most of Canada, contestably, for religious reason, with the exceptions being the Atlantic provinces of Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, where it is an optional holiday.〔(【引用サイトリンク】 title=Statutory Holidays in Canada )〕 Companies that are regulated by the federal government (such as those in the telecommunications and banking sectors) recognize the holiday regardless of its provincial status.〔(【引用サイトリンク】 url=http://www.workrights.ca/content.php?sec=9 )〕〔(【引用サイトリンク】 title=Thanksgiving - is it a Statutory Holiday? )〕〔(【引用サイトリンク】 title=RSNL1990 Chapter L-2 - Labour Standards Act )〕〔(【引用サイトリンク】 format=PDF )〕
