Happy Thanksgiving !
Today is Thanksgiving, a major day when Americans celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims to America on the Mayflower in the 1620’s. The Pilgrims were a group of English people who came to America seeking religious freedom during the reign of King James I.
Abraham Lincoln was an American president who governed America in the 1860’s. He established Thanksgiving as a national holiday in the USA in 1863 as the fourth Thursday in November.
Today Thanksgiving is an important and respected family tradition. It is during this celebration that Americans travel across the country to join their family members and celebrate Thanksgiving around a table and the tradition is to eat a turkey at the meal.
Every year a parade is organised in New York to celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This event is very much liked by Americans, with lots of balloons representing cartoon characters.
We wish all our American friends, relations and customers a very happy Thanksgiving!
