Observed annually as a public holiday on the first Thursday of every November, Thanksgiving in Liberia is heavily influenced by the United States. This comes as no surprise as the country was home to freed slaves from America who governed the country for over 100 years and have their political foundations deeply rooted in that of the United States.

The day is typically marked with a thanksgiving ceremony in Church followed by the auctioning of harvested crops.
