Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions.
In Mexico, we celebrate Thanksgiving but not as much as in the US. People decorate their houses to reflect their spirit about this holiday. Mexican Thanksgiving feast consists in a long dinner table and have turkey most of the time. For Mexicans, Thanksgiving is more about spending quality time with family and friends .
Thanksgiving is important to Americans because it’s a holiday that is all about counting the blessings and sharing a meal with their families.
In Thanksgiving I gather with some friends from the Mexico 100 program, and we had a nice dinner. in a friend’s apartment. We didn’t have turkey for dinner because none of us knew how to cook it, but we prepare tacos and pasta. It was a great day because I spend it with my friends and it’s the first Thanksgiving that I don’t celebrate with my family. When we finished dinner, we went to the mall and it was too crowded, so we couldn’t buy anything and we just went back to my apartment and watched movies.
