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.
