Not pilgrims, there weren't any of those in Canada. Canadian Thanksgiving like similar ceremonies worldwide celebrates a successful harvest. It was probably first celebrated as a Harvest Home celebration the first time settlers successfully brought in a crop. It was not an official holiday until 1957, but Harvest Homes were a well-established custom long before then. American immigrants even brought with them some of the American customs, particularly the eating of turkey.

to celebrate the safe landing of the first pilgrims in Massachusetts that was oh-so-long ago.

No, it is celebrated in other countries such as Canada.The basis to Thanksgiving in America are unrelated to the other Thanksgiving holidays. The reason it is unrelated is because Thanksgiving was to celebrate the co mingling and help the native Americans gave to the Pilgrims. By showing them how to make a crop live long enough to be fruit full. So in Essenes thanksgiving is only an American holiday.

over 300 years thanksgiving has been around

U.S. Thanksgiving fell on November 28 in 2002 and 1996 and 1991, and will again in 2019. On average, there is a 1 in 7 chance that Thanksgiving will fall on the 28th, but the gaps can be as short as 5 years or as long as 12 years (for example, 2097 to 2109). If November starts on a Friday, then Thanksgiving will be on the 28th.

it depends on how you cooked it and plan to store it. but after thanksgiving my family and i will usually eat it as leftovers for about a week or so
