Thanksgiving Day (United States)

Thanksgiving Day is a federal public holiday in the United States, and it is observed on the fourth Thursday in November each year.

Thanksgiving Day is a holiday to celebrate the successful harvest and all the blessings from the last year. People get together with families and friends to enjoy the traditional food typically including roasted turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. For many families, the turkey leftovers may last several days to use up.

In the early years, when people of Europeans landed on the new land, they prayed the blessings such as a safe journey, abundant harvests, and even military victories. The prayer day gradually became Thanksgiving Day. Nowadays, although many churches still provide special services, Thanksgiving Day gradually moved away from its religious roots and become a holiday for all people from various backgrounds.

During the holiday, schools, government departments, and many businesses are closed, and many people have the day of spending time with families.
