Today Thanksgiving Day in the US
Thanksgiving Day is the most anticipated family holiday in the US. It always falls on the fourth Thursday of November. Americans say that Thanksgiving is about family, friends and good food.
These are meetings with the closest family members at one table, abundantly set with delicious, traditional dishes in an atmosphere full of joy, mutual respect and reflection. Many people travel to their families at this time – not once to the other end of the USA to celebrate together.
It can be said that Thanksgiving is perceived by Americans as a holiday celebrated more grandly than Christmas. This is probably primarily due to the symbolism of gratitude that Americans show each other on this day. During Thanksgiving, the whole family gets together – just like in Poland during Christmas.
Thanksgiving Day cannot miss traditional dishes, which include: roasted turkey, bread stuffing, cranberries, green beans, sweet potatoes. For dessert, there is usually pumpkin, apple or cranberry cake, which, served with whipped cream, is the perfect end to this great feast.
