As we enter the last quarter of the year, we can barely contain our excitement for the holiday season. Canadian Thanksgiving lands on Monday, 14th October, followed by the American Thanksgiving on Thursday, 28th November and finally the winter holidays in December. It's time to loosen those belts and spend quality time with loved ones.
However, we can totally relate to the struggle of balancing a social life with a hectic work schedule. We realize that the (estimated) 45,000 Canadian residents living in UAE might not have time to 'cook up a storm' for Thanksgiving.
Don't worry, Cosmo is here to help.
