G ENERALLY more Americans celebrate THANKSGIVING than CHRISTMAS.

I HAVE been in USA twice for Thanksgiving in Georgia & Iowa

V ERY LOVELY FOOD !  Turkey & of course ~ Pumpkin Pie !

I N the UK ~ Thanksgiving is celebrated on the US Military Bases.

N ON-RELIGIOUS Ceremony but basically it is giving ~ Thanks to .....

G OD for the unmolested landing of the PILGRIM FATHERS in 1621 !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN  πŸ’™πŸ§‘πŸ’™

 

If yu*ve never been to a THANKSGIVING DAY DINNER in the

USA ~ You haven*t lived. The video describes what food is eaten 

but TURKEY & PUMPKIN PIE are essential ! Americans eat over 

50 million Turkeys on Thanksgiving ! That is one Turkey per seven

people. Americans living in the UK always celebrate Thanksgiving !

      Nice acrostic with lovely pointers on what Thanksgiving is too many....in our family it’s a day of feasting, camaraderie, and giving thanks for our family members serving abroad in the military.

        BRIAN HERE ~ I am astudent of American History and sharing a THANKSGIVING DINNER in America with Americans showed to Me just how important it is in the American Callendar ! I am interested in Native Americans and pleased that every State now has a Native American Visitor Centre and that is an important part of School History ~ They have a rich culture ! Personally I felt food that was served was superior to the which we enjoyed on Christmas Day with the same Family at Christmas. Of course Christmas is essentially still a Christian Celebration and Thanksgiving Day is Secular (Multi Faith) and observed by ALL AMERICANS ! I was nterested in your comment that for your Family it is a special time to remember Members of your extended Familiy serving abroad with the Military ~ AMEN

        Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
        Your Friends BRIAN & ANGELA πŸ’™πŸ§‘
