Thanksgiving in the United States is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November and commemorates the first Thanksgiving between the Pilgrims and Native Americans at Plymouth. In early autumn of 1641, the 53 surviving Pilgrims celebrated their successful harvest, as was the English custom. That celebration is remembered as the "First Thanksgiving in Plymouth". This is a day where families come together to share in a celebration of the fall harvest.
Thanksgiving is celebrated in different ways by different people everywhere. Turkeys are the main dish in most households, although others serve ham or other main dish. Mashed potatoes with lots of gravy, dressing with various additions such as giblets, onions, mushrooms, etc. are added to the menu. Of course, cranberry sauce, in either the jellied or full berried style, is a spicy addition. The gamut of vegetables ranges from basics like corn to green beans almondine, butternut squash and other fruits of the earth.
What would Thanksgiving be without desert? Pumpkin and Mincemeat pies along with other pastries and sweet concoctions served with after dinner coffees and teas complete the dinner. Time to settle down and relax with family games and football on television.
