How do People Celebrate Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving Day families and friends come together and enjoy a lavish meal. The main food includes turkey, cranberry sauce, and different types of potatoes, stuffing, seasonal vegetables, maize and gravy. This day is dedicated to giving thanks to the harvest.

Some people also hold Thanksgiving Day parade. In a few places, the Thanksgiving marks the beginning of Christmas shopping. Few people have a four day long weekend; they therefore plan short trips or watch football games with friends and family.
