It has went very far from it's traditional meaning. Thanksgiving is supposedly a holiday to give thanks, but you are not giving thanks at all. Nowdays it is a holiday is where you go see some obligatory in law or relative and stuff yourself with turkey, watch Detroit play football, zonk out, and stuff your gut with some more turkey after that. The women have to do all the cooking, dishes, etc. while the men just gorge on the food. But the women get revenge the next day...Black Friday shopping!
Typical guy on thanksgiving: Ah, turkey was good...lets watch Detroit beat the Bears...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

a command you use to tell someone to get their feet off the chair they're sitting on. This verb originated in Philadelphia. What was originally said that when person A is sitting on person B's chair with their leg on it, person B says to person A, "I want to come to your house for Thanksgiving this year and put my feet on your chair," implying that person A should put their feet on the floor. Eventually, it just turned into "thanksgiving."

Canadian Thanksgiving used to be held on the same day as American Thanksgiving, but by late November Canadians aren't feeling very thankful.

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.
