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.

A day where fat people can eat even more than they usually do and not feel bad, then use the leftover gravy while having sex. May also use a turkey leg in a similar manner as chicken winging
On thanksgiving, tina always makes two turkeys for her fat husband and herself. She also makes extra gravy so dale can fuck her while licking the gravy off of her nipples.

A day in which beer, football and turkey are celebrated and/or devoured.

Many times, drunk people will give thanks for the success of their team.

This word may have had a different meaning before modern times.
