On these days, most of Canadian will have a day off to gather with their family and enjoy their own Thanksgiving dishes together. In Thanksgiving weekend, they often visit family or friends who live far away, or to receive them in their own homes. Many people also prepare a special meal to eat at some point during the long weekend.
