Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the USA, now

it is celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November

and people have a four-day weekend. On this day people

visit friends and relatives. Customary dinner always

includes roast turkey and pumpkin pie.

In 1621, the year after the Pilgrims arrived in

Massachusetts, in their search for religious freedom,

there was very terrible winter, winter of great

starvation. Nearly half of Pilgrims died and they turned

for help to Native Americans, their neighbors. Native

Americans taught them how to plant corn and other

crops. The harvest was wonderful and the Pilgrims gave

thanksgiving feast with the four wild turkeys. William

Bradford proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving.

On this day American families get together and have a Thanksgiving dinner. People give thanks to God for their good fortune and for being together. Native Americans gave Pilgrims a helping hand and the Pilgrims paid back kindness to kindness. Thanksgiving teaches us to help each other and to be good friends. Thanksgiving makes people kinder, sincerer, and more friendly.

Thanksgiving traditions

Americans stay at home with their families and eat big dinner.
Of course, like in many other holidays there are some symbols

of Thanksgiving. All people give thanks together for the good

things that they have. In this spirit of sharing, civic groups and

charitable organizations offer a traditional meal to those in need,

particularly the homeless.
On most tables throughout the US, foods eaten at the first

thanksgiving have become traditional. Turkey, corn, pumpkins and

cranberry sauce are symbols which represent the first


Many people attend religious services on Thanksgiving Day, and

watching football games—sometimes in person but usually on

television—is also a popular Thanksgiving Day activity.

Though Americans like Thanksgiving's Day they do not give

presents on it at all.

It is fantastic that in the USA there is such a great holiday as

Thanksgiving Day because people should know how to say “Thank

you for all!” or “Forgive me for all, please!”. On this day family

should forget all theirs misunderstandings and share theirs

problems and certainly have fun! It is very important that it is

celebrated in each family. So we should always thank God for living!
