Thanksgiving ! Though we Indians don’t celebrate it, (If you’re an Indian and celebrating Thanksgiving, happy Thanksgiving!) this holiday no longer makes us scratch our heads and wonder what it is, thanks to Hollywood’s exposure in abundance and Google, that now the whole world knows what it is. Well, in reality, the first thing that comes to our heads when we think of Thanksgiving, is Turkey. And pumpkin pie. But, what is Thanksgiving really about?
Here is a simple rundown. Thanksgiving is a national holiday that is celebrated in Canada and the United States. While Canadians celebrate it in the month of October, Americans celebrate in the month of November. It is also celebrated in other parts of the world as well. On the day of thanksgiving, families gettogether, a huge feast is prepared, and at dinner, they all take turns to say what they’re thankful for.
For an endless detailed version, you’re very much free to Wikipedia it.
So if you’re a family person, a huge foodie, wanting to do something to kick off the weekend spirits, and are just looking for a reason to celebrate, well then, knock yourselves out!
