The history of Thanksgiving in the United States dates as far back as 1621 when it was observed by Pilgrims and Puritans who emigrated from England and settled in New England.
Celebrated as a public holiday, Thanksgiving Day is anticipated by many people for various reasons. For some, it’s a time to spend with family, give thanks and enjoy delectable recipes. Others look forward to it because it is yet another day away from the pressures of work and school.
Many people have the tendency to be overly curious at Thanksgiving dinners. If you want to avoid such a situation, just let the music fill the room and conversations naturally die out. Also, families contemplate when to start blurring Christmas carols at home. This is perfect after Thanksgiving, officially activating the Christmas mode.
