From family and football, to delicious food, almost everyone is excited for this special day. A day off work, school and eating to the heart’s content, Thanksgiving is the holiday to have. November 28 is the day to look forward too.
The turkey, mash potatoes, gravy and pumpkin pie are just some of the delicious foods Americans consume each year. Then after being filled with delicious food, it is time to kick back and relax and watch a great game of football.
Football is one of the big traditions that families from every state watch.
While thankful for the food, November is a great month to be thankful for everything in life. From having great food to watching an intense football game in the comfort of home, what else can we be thankful for?
While traditions are different from one family to the next, not two Thanksgivings are the same. Some families just prefer the traditional meal with family and friends gathered around the big table. Others prefer to eat and then spend the night outside various stores for the sales that begin for Black Friday at midnight.
From 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving as a national holiday to 2013, there have been many Thanksgiving dinners celebrated all around the United States.
