Unlike American Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving in Canada, known as Action de Grâce in Montreal, falls on Monday, October 14 this year. There are plenty of seasonal activities taking place around the city. Thanksgiving weekend is the perfect time to visit Montreal to explore all the fall colors.
Montreal Fall Foliage
The slow transformation of the trees in Quebec is a sight many do not to want to miss. The maple leaves season brings along a feeling of gratitude and appreciation to all who take the time to listen to the humming and whispers of the leaves. A time for strolling in the park and letting the mind wander, the end of September and beginning of October is the best moment to gaze at the sea of red, orange and gold.
Although the trees are everywhere, the magical sights are located in the greatest – and sometimes secret – parks of Montreal. The most popular being Mount-Royal, taking a bus and starting the journey there is the easiest way. Then, heading West, make a stop at the protected land of Morgan Arboretum on the way to the remotely located Bois-de-l’Île-Bizard Nature Park. If the group also wants to visit the hidden Bois-De-Liesse Park, Layman Transport's excellent customer service will take one for the team and make all the arrangements necessary. With their professional drivers on the wheel, the whole family can sit back and enjoy the ride in the comfortable Sedan. Now, if grandparents, aunts and uncles decide to tag along at the last minute, a quick call or email to Layman can turn the trip to the cottage into a very noisy, but memorable one.
Enjoy a Holiday Meal
The typical meals for Thanksgiving would be the seasoned turkey, corn ears and pumpkin pie. However, if one wants to impress guests or other family members, a stop to the public markets of Montreal could literally spice up the dinner table. The Atwater Market or the Farmer’s markets in Jean-Talon hold local produces that will amaze and bring fun times at the kitchen.
Moreover, if an apple pie or applesauce is something that cannot be missing from the Thanksgiving, simply add to your itinerary the "Paradis des Fruits" or the "Domaine du Duham" to have access to the reddest, freshest apples for your pastries.
Bringing the family together can be done with the help of Layman, but regardless of what the dinner consist of, regardless of the little disputes that might occur here and there, Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, for giving grace for the love and people in one’s life. Such times are irreplaceable, and should be spent around the hearth, rejoicing on old memories and enjoy the last moments before the cold officially settles in.
