Thanksgiving and Other Cultures

Thanksgiving is almost here, what are your cultural heritages that fit with this American holiday?

I’m Canadian. We celebrate Thanksgiving the second Monday in October. We observe it with turkey, stuffing, sausage meat, cranberry sauce, brussels sprouts,, potatoes and gravy, and mincemeat pie. We don't watch football, which appears to be an American tradition. 

I’m curious, what about how the Americans celebrate? What are your traditions - beside football? Do the British celebrate Thanksgiving? If so how? Do any other cultures celebrate turkey day, and if you do, how do you fit it in with your culture?
I'd love to hear from you.

  1. We celebrate it the last Thursday in November, not a specific date. We cook as well, turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and other treats. We spend the day with our family and talk about what we are thankful for as the year winds up.
