Why we celebrate Thanksgiving Day?
Thanksgiving Day in the US precedes Black Friday. This day is an annual holiday, beginning in 1863. Some citizens do not consider Thanksgiving Day a holiday. So, in 1970, Native Americans, Massachusetts residents, held a rally against Thanksgiving Day. According to the history, the first Thanksgiving Day was held in Els Paso, Texas in 1598. Earlier in 1619, when there were colonies, also celebrated Thanksgiving Day. But at that time this holiday was associated with harvesting. True Thanksgiving was held in 1623.
What Do People Do?
Thanksgiving Day is considered a family holiday. On this day it is customary to cook special food: turkey, potatoes, cranberry sauce, vegetables, pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving Day is a day when people are grateful for what they have.
Parades for the holiday are organized in many cities of the country. Some parades are associated with the opening of the Christmas shopping season. Some Americans can take advantage of their 4-day weekend, so they go to their relatives and friends.
How to Celebrate Thanksgiving Day?
Many public institutions, schools and businesses are closed in Thanksgiving Day. Offices and enterprises give their employees a few days of rest – up to 4 days. Therefore, many organizations are closed on Friday after Thanksgiving Day. Transport goes on a new schedule. Thanksgiving Day – the period of active movement of Americans, which provides airlines and other transport services with a high rate of passenger turnover.
