Thanksgiving is a celebration only celebrated in  the U.S and Canada ,although it is not celebrated on the same day it is for the same purpose. For giving thanks to the harvest and of the preceding year.

In the U.S it’s celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November but in Canada they celebrate thanksgiving on the second Monday of October.



In canada it is a compulsory holiday in all of the provinces except for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Even though businesses can stay open in these provinces a lot of people still celebrate it in those places.




Thanksgiving is normally celebrated by having a huge meal which normally consists of a turkey, peas,corn,potatoes,pumpkin pie and much more. People usually get the whole family including aunts,uncles,grandparents and of course your normal family.
