October in Canada

October is a beautiful month in Canada. All of the trees don their beautiful autumn gowns and bright splashes of red, orange, yellow and brown look marvelous on a backdrop of evergreens.

A lot goes on in Canada during October. It is Autism Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Women's History Month. I will be touching on all of these subjects during October.

Best of all, Thanksgiving is celebrated in Canada during the month of October. It is a time to give thanks for the harvest, for the love of family and friends and for all other blessings received during the year. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday after Christmas. This year it will be celebrated on October 13th, which is my friend Pea's birthday.

Have a great day and enjoy the sights, sounds and fragrances of the season. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. Thanks, Mary - I loved the graphic so I borrowed it for future usage!
    BTW -you asked me a question that I neglected to answer but thought of it now while reading your post -the part about Pea and Oct. 13th. Mine is Oct. 8th and Miss Maya's is Oct 18th.
    Just send pie please -preferably lemon meringue or cherry cheesecake!

  2. Looking forward to the trees turning here too.. I've seen some light yellows.. but not the oranges and reds yet.. I might borrow your graffic for Nov. ~ann

  3. I loved the graphic. Pea and I share a Birthay month mine is the 6th of October...Blesings...m..

  4. October is one of my favourite months. Our twins were born in Oct and I have loved the colours and our Canadian Thanksgiving. It is our last hurrah before the dark, long winter.

  5. Happy October to you dear Mary! Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. I know you will.....

    Have a terrific day today.

  6. happy October girl........ I am rushing around today but wanted to stop in for just a minute...... I pray for Aunt May today......... wonder how she is doing...........

    Have a wonderful fall day..... Our trees will not turn for another two or three weeks........ then me and Dennis are going to go for a ride.... I hope !

    Love ya

  7. How interesting … I’ll look forward to seeing all the Fall Colors you share since I won’t see much of that here in Southern California. I'm wondering how your Aunt is doing so I hope you'll update us again soon. Thanks for sharing the Thanksgiving graphic ;--)
    Hugs and blessings

  8. Leave it to me to be celebrating my birthday with the turkey this year! hehe I'm making my Thanksgiving dinner on the Sunday because I refuse to cook on my birthday!!! With you it's vice versa, your birthday will be on the Sunday! lol October certainly will be a busy but fun month:-)

    Love that graphic...the other day I was browsing the net and found quite a few nice Victorian graphics for Christmas and other holidays.

    Hope your week is going well, my friend. Another cold and rainy day here. xoxo

  9. I do love October!
    And I so wish we celebrated Thanksgiving in October--it would give us a little break from turkey.

  10. I noticed that holiday on my calendar.
    Our colors usually peak about the second week of November so we have a ways to go. I did see a little color on a Red Maple this morning.

    One thing about the cooler temperatures that I look forward to in October is less electicity use and a lower bill.


  12. I wish our Thanksgiving was in October too - makes more sense to me. Happy October!

  13. Thanks for the reminder about Canadian Thanksgiving. I know, I know, I should remember but I've lived here so long it almost seems foreign to me.

  14. Thank you so much for the graphic, Mary! It is darling!

    I envy you for getting to eat turkey this month! I can hardly wait for our big turkey dinner! LOL

    (((((( HUGS ))))))

  15. I would love to see some pictures of your beautiful Fall trees...Maybe you could post some!

  16. I love October as well, and our colors are starting to mosey on in, but we won't peak until the second week of November. We had a cooler, beautiful weather this week, but will be back into the 80s by the weekend and next week. Very pleasant weather, with cool nights for good sleeping.

    Thank you for sharing the lovely graphic.

    Happy October!



  17. Hello Mary! I know it's been awhile. It's hard to keep up with my favorite blogs, mine, housework, kids and homeschooling.

    But I am finding my way through it all! :)

    Happy Thanksgiving to you! :)

  18. Hi Mary, sorry it has been awhile that I visited. . . Love it that you celebrate it in October, so wish we did. I love this month soooo colorful!!! My favorite month:)

  19. October surely is a busy month! I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving in October. It's lovely with the trees changing color and would give a nice break until Christmas season.

    Happy Birthday, my friend!
    Love & Hugs,
