Thanksgiving is certainly one of America’s popular holidays. And why wouldn’t it be? Picture this: a day off from work devoted to eating special meals, meeting friends and family and showing appreciation – what isn’t there to love?
Each year, on the 4thThursday of November, Americans gather and consume an unbelievable 46 million turkeys. Turkey is usually used as a symbol of Thanksgiving; however, you might be surprised to learn that no turkey was consumed at the very first Thanksgiving Day, which took place in the autumn of 1621. 90 Wampanoag Indians and 50 Pilgrims gathered to feast for 3 days on fowl and deer as well as fruits and vegetables. There was no sign of the famous bird.
That said, over the years, turkeys have always been part of the celebration. Below is a list of Thanksgiving Day activity ideas that you and your family members can try.
