Thanksgiving Day is a day that is celebrated with great enthusiasm and unity across America, as traditionally, this is a day considered to commemorate the harvest festival. Before the Americans could settle on the American continent, the American Indians observed this day as harvest day; it used to last for almost three days in a row.

Families, friends and relatives get together and celebrate it by having lunch or dinner together, and the main dish during the meals is the thanksgiving turkey.

Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.” – Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving
