In the last blog, we laid down the ideas of how you can celebrate Thanksgiving Day 2016. However, having ample knowledge of the day is what is important before celebrating it. Hence, that’s exactly we’ll be talking about here.

Looking forward to the actual meaning of Thanksgiving Day, this blog would lay out its basic meaning.

Being celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November (falling on 24th this year), it marks the official start of the holiday season of the year. The holiday is celebrated by the young and the old with full enthusiasm and zest in many ways, this day is about being together with your family and friends.

If you look back in the history, you’d find that it all started when the Pilgrims celebrated after their first harvest in the New World, which is America at the present time. If you didn’t know, this being an American-centric holiday, even Canadians celebrate it on a different day.

Turkey is the center of attraction
If you didn’t know, one of the theory states that Queen Elizabeth was having Goose for dinner when the news came that the fleet of Spanish ships sunk while they were coming to attack England. Hence, she ordered for another goose in order to celebrate the defeat. There are other stories too but this is the most prominent one among them.

Hence, if you are celebrating the Thanksgiving Day, make sure you have a cooked (roasted, grilled or fried) Turkey on the table for the family and friends. In addition, other dishes are also important because the only turkey won’t do.

Other food items necessary at the table
Without turkey, your Thanksgiving Day would not be Thanksgiving  but without the other dishes, the celebration would be incomplete. Some of the must-haves on the table are- cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and apple pie with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it all off and an all-time favorite Pumpkin Pie.

Christmas songs are an integral part
As it was mentioned above, Thanksgiving is the official start of the festivities that finishes on Christmas, you’d find families playing Christmas carols and hymns when they sit together to share food with each other.

Sharing is an essential
