England has a kind of harvest day in October, but no Thanksgiving. That holiday is strictly North American, and is a day to honour the feast that the pilgrims and Indians had as a sign of their new - and short-lived- peaceable living arrangements.

Canada celebrates Thanksgiving the second Monday in October. Traditionally it's a quiet holiday, with a big dinner with familyand that's about it. The Amercians celebrate it on the 24th of November, and traditionally it's a three ring circus, and also the official start of the Christmas holidays.
