Thanks Giving – Brief Summary

Hello Folks,

When I was in U.S, I remember having difficulty in understanding Thanksgiving and it’s traditions. To be honest, Thanksgiving is a very easy to understand holiday tradition ever.

Thanksgiving Day, is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. It has officially been an annual tradition since 1863. The event that some Americans commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims ( travelers) to give thanks to God for guiding them safely to the New World.

In the modern world, people celebrate it to give thanks for all the blessings they have by God. The great feast tradition differs from family to family. Usually every family gathers for a big great feast. The dinner table is filled with delicious and mouth watering dishes.


Firstly, baked or roasted turkey is usually the featured item on any Thanksgiving feast table.  Stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, various fall vegetables (mainly various kinds of squashes), and pumpkin pie are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner. All of these are actually native to the Americas or were introduced as a new food source to the Europeans when they arrived.

Above mentioned is a very brief summary of ‘Thanks Giving Day’. For any other question feel free to ask and comment below.

Thank You.
