Happy Thanksgiving 2017!
People all over the United States are all set to celebrate one of the most important national holidays — Thanksgiving. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November annually and this year it is observed on November 23.
The occasion is to thank God for all the blessings and a good harvest. However, it is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada.
Thanksgiving is also known as Turkey Day as family members gather together for a delicious feast on the special day. Large roasted Turkey is one of the important dishes served along with a variety of side dishes, including potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and vegetables, among others.
Thanksgiving Day parades will also be held in some cities to mark the opening of the Christmas shopping season. Meanwhile, a four-day weekend is also a time for family trips.
