More about Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day is on the fourth Thursday of November. It is a time to give thanks for the harvest and of the preceding year. Today, Thanksgiving means spending time with family and friends over a large feast. Thanksgiving Day has been celebrated in the United States since 1863.

Celebration\ Observance
Thanksgiving Day centers around family and friends where a meal is shared. The meal traditionally includes turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, gravy and pumpkin pie. It's a time to reflect and give thanks for what they have. Parades and festivities are held in some cities, portraying Thanksgiving and marking the start of the Christmas season. Most government and businesses are closed. Many people have the Friday after Thanksgiving off giving them a four day weekend which is popular to see family and friends out of town.
