It’s the Time of Year to Give Thanks

Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks. It all began in November 1621, when the pilgrims got together with the Wampanoag Indians for an autumn feast, which is now regarded as America’s first Thanksgiving.

It has been an annual holiday in the U.S since 1863. Many people celebrate Thanksgiving by going to a nice restaurant or going to someone’s house to celebrate with the whole family. Some people even have a checklist that tells who is bringing what dish to share.

The most common foods that have been served on Thanksgiving are the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and some vegetables like carrots, corn, and peas. Many people also decorate their homes by having candles lit up and putting orange, brown and red leaves around the house.

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the U.S but in Canada, it is celebrated on the second Monday of October.

Some people like to go shopping for clothes and some stores often have sales on or before Thanksgiving. Some people also like to make their food while other people like to buy their food. There are many different ways to celebrate Thanksgiving.
