Thanksgiving is a national holiday in the United States, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It originated as a harvest festival. The event that Americans commonly call the „First Thanksgiving“ was celebrated by the Pilgrims and the native Americans after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. Family Celebration Thanksgiving Day is a day for people in the US to give thanks for what they have. Families and friends get together for a meal, which traditionally includes a roast turkey, stuffing, potatoes, vegetables, cranberry sauce, gravy, and pumpkin pie. There is often too much food to enjoy and you’ll be eating the leftover turkey as sandwiches, burritos, and casseroles for the rest of the week. In some cities and towns, there are parades during the Thanksgiving weekend. A famous one is the Macy Thanksgiving Parade. In most areas, these festivities also mark the opening of the Christmas shopping season.
