Thanksgiving falls on Thursday 22 November this year. And while it’s a traditionally American occasion, it has become more global in recent years – some families seeing it as an opportunity to spend the day with the ‘other’ family they don’t get to spend Christmas day with.
Dating back to the 1620s, the tradition takes place on the last Thursday in November and is seen as an opportunity to give thanks and spend time with loved ones.
Much like Christmas day, the occasion is celebrated with a delicious spread, featuring roast turkey and all the trimmings. But being Americans, there’s some great additions to include. If you’re thinking of hosting your own family meal time Thanksgiving dinner, here’s some great American traditions you might want to include:
The main event
Great family films to watch!
Forget an EastEnders punch up and the Queens Speech, Americans will be enjoying holiday films that give all the feels! Here’s a couple all the family are sure to enjoy
Great music to listen to
Once the pies are eaten, the kid’s plates are clean and the movies are over, it’s time to turn up the volume and listen to a Michael Buble Christmas album, perfection!
Happy Thanksgiving one and all!
