Like many holidays in America it has been secularized. The typical portrait of the holiday is the typical American family stuffing themselvs at the table while watching Football(American Football) and the Rose Parade(A parade held in Pasadena California before the aforementioned football game).
The holiday can be controversial, many people say that this holiday celebrates the massacre of the Indigenous people of the United States that is not true. The holiday commemorates the Pilgrims, religious exiles from Europe, giving thanks to for their survival of the harsh climate of the American continent.
Oh boy! its thanksgiving now we can all stuff ourselves.
Turkey 1: Say Joe have you heard the ghost story about "Thanksgiving"?
Turkey 2: No, what happens?
Turkey 1: Every year, on the same day, millions of Turkeys get their heads chopped off and then get eaten!
Turkey 2: Holy cow! Lucky it's just a ghost story.
