Thanksgiving : thanks to God why a turkey

        Thanksgiving is a non-religious holiday celebrated exclusively in North America. To remember and thank God that helped the first batch of North American immigrants to survive.

        This tradition arose after European immigration to North America. Thanksgiving is not celebrated in Europe or other Christian countries. In the United States, Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday of November each year. This year it falls on November 25.

        In Canada, winter approaches earlier, it is celebrated in October.

        After the migrants survived from starvation, sickness and cold weather in the new land for 1 year, after harvesting the crops, therefore, a feast of thanksgiving was organized and inviting native Indians to join. The feast included wild turkeys, ducks, geese, cod and deer. Turkey has become a symbol of Thanksgiving to this day.

        But in some legends say baked goose is commonly eaten by the British at celebrations and brought this tradition to a new land like the United States. Instead, it has been replaced by turkeys, which are local in North America and are easier to find. Beyond roast turkey with cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie or apple pie, which are autumn produce, are also popular as desserts.

        Besides seasonal food, Thanksgiving is also a festival where family members can spend time together. This makes it one of the busiest travel periods in both the US and Canada.
