Thanksgiving is an annual national holiday that is celebrated in the United States of America and Canada. People celebrate Thanksgiving as a way to give thanks for the harvest and other good things they have received over the past year. However, this celebration also has a long story before it is celebrated annually. It was first begun in 1621 when English colonists of Plymouth which was known as Pilgrims held a harvest feast. Americans then believe that this was the first model of what Thanksgiving looks like. No wonder that you will see a lot of traditional meals such as turkey, bread stuffing, potatoes, cranberries, or pumpkin pie. These are symbols that show how thankful they are for the foods and other good things in a year.
People in the USA and Canada who celebrate Thanksgiving usually gather for a feast on the holiday. Friends and family will join a table where they eat all these traditional foods such as turkey, pumpkin pie, or cranberries. It should be warm and full of joy as they gather together. However, as time flies, this holiday moves away from its religious roots to an annual tradition. Therefore, some people decide to allow immigrants and strangers from any background to join them and celebrate this holiday.
This year, Thanksgiving is celebrated on Thursday, 26 November 2020. There will be food and people who gather and make a good moment. However, they might need other Thanksgiving accessories such as t-shirts, hats, or masks, all with Thanksgiving themes. You can make a Thanksgiving mask by yourself actually. Open your computer, look on the Internet, and see what you can get. Probably a tutorial to make a turkey mask? That would be fun!
The holidays won’t be perfect without a gift. The gift is not only for Christmas, right? Now, imagine how happy your kids are when you give them a cute t-shirt with a turkey face on it as a gift. That would be perfect! A gift doesn’t have to be fancy all the time. Small gifts such as t-shirts, hats, candy, or blankets are enough. There are a hundred products that you can find actually. You can buy it from the store or you can decide to make it by yourself. Since we are still in a pandemic situation and should stay at home, why don’t we make our Thanksgiving gift by ourselves? You can find many tutorials on the Internet or you can buy it online.
