What is the history of Thanksgiving?
Contrary to popular belief, Thanksgiving is not just an American holiday. Canada, Liberia and some of the Caribbean islands also celebrate the holiday. In the USA, the holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, while in Canada it is usually on the second Monday of October. The Pilgrims and Puritans brought the holiday to America, when they emigrated from England in the 1620s. The holiday celebrates the harvest. The Pilgrims shared their good harvest with the native Americans, after they arrived, which is why the day is called Thanksgiving. President George Washington proclaimed it a national holiday in 1789.

What are some of the most famous Thanksgiving traditions?
The Thanksgiving dinner usually includes roasted turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, cornbread, etc. Pumpkins, apples and pears are a must on the table as fall fruits. Recently, one of the most famous traditions is the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, which is held on the streets of New York City. Millions of Americans tune in to watch live on the streets, as well as on TV, since the parade is televised every year. It usually contains floats, large balloons, which are always themed accordingly, as well as marching bands. To sum up, Thanksgiving is a holiday to spend time with your family, eat a lot and relax.
