ThanksGiving Day - November 24, 2011
 
Thanksgiving day is celebrated around the world with great enthusiasm. Countries like America, Greece, China and Egypt and the rest of the countries celebrate Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving is related to Harvest Festival that had long been a traditional holiday in much of Europe.

It is celebrated in a variety of ways around the world. Although the Thanksgiving celebrations differ, the spirit of love and joy in celebrating it around the world remains the same. The people celebrate Thanks giving Day each year as a day to thank God for the reward of the crops and blessings received during the year.

Thanks giving Day is also called turkey day, because turkey is the most common main dish of a Thanks giving dinner.
 
  • In the United States, Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.
  • In Canada, where the harvest generally ends earlier in the year, Thanks giving holiday is celebrated on the second Monday, which is also observed as Columbus Day.
It's the time of family gatherings and holiday meals and joyous reunions. And also the time for turkeys stuffing and pumpkin pie, strawberry-rhubarb pie, pecan pie, Indian corn, holiday parades, giant balloons, and holiday pictures for the kids to print and color, sending tasty holiday recipes and e-greeting cards to friends and relatives.

Thanks giving is almost entirely celebrated at home, unlike the New Year or Christmas, which has lot of fireworks, parties, caroling, etc. Major Celebrations are Parades, Spending Time with Family, Eating Large Dinners and participating in Football (Canada and USA)

Thanksgiving is also a time for serious religious thinking, church services, and prayer. All family members visit churches and offer thanks prayers in praise of God. The children sing and dance and the adults travel to meet their distant relatives and friends. The kids love being a part of the celebrations that are accompanied with delicious food, games and other activities of their interest. This makes for the most enticing part of the Thanksgiving celebrations.

In Great Britain, Thanksgiving is also known as Harvest festival. This tradition was taken to North America by early settlers.

 
 
The history of Thanks giving begins with the first English settlers in the northeastern part, of the United States. These settlers were called pilgrims. On Dec. 4, 1619, a group of 38 English settlers arrived at Berkeley Plantation (now Charles City) The First Thanksgiving in New England was celebrated in Plymouth less than a year after the Plymouth colonists had settled in America.
 
The first dreadful winter in Massachusetts had killed about half the members of the colony. But new hope arose in the summer of 1621. The history of Thanksgiving is basically the story of the pilgrims and their thankful community feast at Plymouth Massachusetts.

The first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, to commemorate the harvest reaped by the Plymouth colony and Thanksgiving days were celebrated throughout the colonies after all harvests. Initially, Thanksgiving observance was entirely religious and did not involve feasting.

Thanksgiving Day in Canada is celebrated in the same way as in the US. It was formerly celebrated on the last Monday of October and in 1957, the government proclaimed the second Monday in October to be the holiday.
