Hi there lovely beings, it´s Lotty here...
I am so looking forward to this Thanksgiving, as I already invited some of my friends and family!
This American holiday is particularly rich in legend and symbolism, and the traditional fare of the Thanksgiving meal typically includes turkey, bread stuffing, potatoes, cranberries, and my personal favorite, pumpkin pie!
Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November while as I know in Canada nearly one month and a half earlier (second Monday of October). Thanksgiving has deep roots in religious tradition, but nowadays it is primarily celebrated as a secular holiday.
When does it all began? In the early XVII century, but the date and popularity varied between states. Things things are never clarified very accurately in my opinion. The first one happened on November 26, 1789 by George Washington.
Thanksgiving is a great time to be thankful and appreciate who you have and what you have. It is a time for families to meet, socialize and enjoy each other's company, sometimes the only opportunity in a year. Some prefer it to Christmas because of less emphasis on consumerism. Thanksgiving, for most, is also a start of a four day weekend which is great, too.
