Thanksgiving traditions and history

Every year on the fourth Thursday in November, millions of Americans nationwide gather for a Thanksgiving Day filled with feasting, family, and football. We dine on traditional dishes such as roasted turkey and gravy, stuffing, candied yams, corn, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie, and family and friends come from far and wide to gather around the table to give thanks and get “stuffed” at this annual meal.
