Thanksgiving is a celebration in USA, which is celebrated on the 4th Thursday in november.
Many of the Pilgrims died during their first winter in North America. They were cold and did not have enough food. The following year though, the Native Americans who were from the Wampanoag tribe helped them grow crops. At harvest time, in the winter of 1621, they were very thankful that they had a good crop of food to eat during the coming winter. They thanked God and the Native Americans for teaching them how to grow the local foods.
It’s now a celebrate day during which people are thankful for different things. They thank God, family and friends. Families get together for a huge family dinner. The traditional meal is turkey.
