Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated in the United States. It is a feast day, where people characteristically eat the Turkey a bird which gives it the nickname "Turkey day".
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.
We give thanksgiving to god today for our survival.

Oh boy! its thanksgiving now we can all stuff ourselves.

"Damn, it's not a weekend, and i want to eat all day"

A Turkey's worst nightmare.
On Halloween:
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.

To commemorate a past event, you kill and eat an animal. It's a ritual sacrifice. With pie.
Thanksgiving isn't about blending of two cultures. It's about one culture wiping out another. And then they make animated specials about the part with the maize and the big belt buckles. They don't show you the next scene, where all the bison die and Squanto takes a musket ball in the stomach.

A tradition started by the Indians to make the white folks get fat, so that when they get revenge and kill all of us in 2012, we'll be too fat and lazy to fight back.
Every ****ing year we eat way too much at Thanksgiving.

A day that epitomizes how wonderful it is to be a gluttonous, fat, lazy American. A day to sit on stolen land eating food we may have never discovered and watch a sport that was copied from the very shores our ancestors so readily fled. Also conveniently situated on a Thursday, meaning most people end up with a 4-day weekend.
The origin of the word Thanksgiving:
"THANKS for the gardening tips, Chief. We'll be GIVING you some blankets as soon as we get the ships unloaded."
