How Digital Agencies celebrated Thanksgiving 2017
Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated mostly in Canada and in the United States. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October as an annual holiday to give thanks at the close of the harvest season, whereas in the United States, it has been an annual tradition by presidential proclamation since 1863. It is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of November.
According to some historians, the first celebration of Thanksgiving in North America occurred in 1578 during the voyage of Martin Frobisher from England, who was looking for the Northwest Passage. Although the origin of Thanksgiving is still disputed, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday.
This year, in Canada the holiday fell on the 9th of October, while in the United States it was on the 23rd of November.
Many digital agencies gave thanks and took some free time to celebrate. Take a look at what they did!

8. I’d feel sad to eat these cute pancakes!
In the spirit of family, food, and traditions, we'd like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving with turkey-day themed pancake art by Chuck Yust, a principal design technologist at frog, and his two kids. Every Saturday for the past four years, Chuck and his son (6) and daughter (3) come together to make art out of pancake mix, and it's pretty freaking adorable. His kids come with the requests, help mix, and make; so, as Chuck says: "We have a lot of Disney princesses, Star Wars characters, and dinosaurs for breakfast…" Follow along their pancake-making adventures at @prandomcakes, and feel free to put in a request for their next art piece in the comments below! Happy Thanksgiving.🦃
9. Just by chance, are there any leftovers?
