Thanksgiving Around the World
Did you know the American holiday of Thanksgiving has roots dating back to the 1600s when colonists held a harvest feast with local natives? Over the years, a variety of customs and traditions have evolved. Most of us associate the American holiday of Thanksgiving with a time for families and friends to come together, turkey centerpieces, parades with our favorite cartoons as giant balloons, football, volunteering, and giving thanks. It’s a time of reflection for families, and a time of giving for communities. But what about the rest of the world? Ever wonder how they celebrate Thanksgiving?
