<p>does McGill give thanksgiving break?</p>
<p>Not for the US Thanksgiving, no.</p>
<p>that sucks! Yeah, i was wondering why i saw so many people walking around on Wednesday before i left to go home (got back from visiting).</p>
<p>When do they get a break then? How long is it?</p>
<p>You get a break on Canadian Thanksgiving which is in October, you get a monday off at thats about it.</p>
<p>My son is coming home instead the second week of December, after classes are over but before final exams. He think he'll have more productive study at home than in his dorm.
He was missed yesterday but we'll have him home for a longer time.</p>
<p>Canadian Thanksgiving, the second Monday of October, is the last holiday you get before Xmas (yep, it's a long stretch). Some American students do skip classes and go home for their Thanksgiving. After that, it all depends on your exam schedule.</p>
