Even if I’m not American or Canadian, I’ve always liked the concept of Thanksgiving. A day where families get together, share a meal and celebrate the blessings of the past year. It is, without a doubt, a festivity with deep meaning that dates back to the 17th century, when English colonists and Wampanoag got together to share the harvest feast.
A traditional Thanksgiving meal would typically include turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, cornbread, cranberry sauce, and, of course, pumpkin pie. Nowadays, there are different variations to the traditional meal, including vegetarian options. But putting food aside, it is a great opportunity for families and friends to get together and make memories. This is probably why I love Thanksgiving so much!
