Thanksgiving is a popular holiday in the United States that unites families in order to give thanks for good fortunes, family and friends. It’s also a celebration of the year’s harvest that features a bountiful and traditional feast. It traditionally takes place on the fourth Thursday in November.
What is the origin of Thanksgiving Day?
Thanksgiving is said to have originated from the celebration of the Autumn harvest by the people who migrated from Europe to the United States.
Upon arrival to North America, the early settlers had challenges with gathering food in the new land. The settlers learned farming and hunting with the help of Native Americans (Indians) to which they showed their gratitude with an invitation to celebrate the successful harvest together before winter.
This annual tradition continued and it was enacted that this new American holiday celebration would take place on the fourth Thursday in November of each year henceforth.
What is the traditional way to celebrate Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving Day is a day for family and friends to get together and enjoy a traditional holiday feast. Food takes precedent on this popular holiday, shared together with loved ones.
Thanksgiving is one of the most popular holidays amongst Americans much like New Year's in Japan. Since everyone spends time with family and friends preparing their feasts at home, most supermarkets, restaurants and shops are closed making this holiday and important day for Americans.
What are some traditional Thanksgiving's classic dishes?
Turkey was on the original menu shared by the colonists and Native Americans on the initial celebration, and to this day continues to be the main dish for Thanksgiving Day.
Other standard menu items include mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing (baked small pieces of bread and vegetables), cranberry sauce, green bean casserole (boiled green beans) and for dessert, pumpkin & pecan pie.
