Happy Thanksgiving Day In Puerto Vallarta

Thanksgiving is an annual holiday celebrated to give thanks for the previous year’s harvest. Recognized more commonly as an American holiday, Thanksgiving is also observed, on various dates, in several countries, such as Canada, Grenada, Liberia, and St. Lucia. In mainland Europe and the United Kingdom, a harvest festival in honor of the season’s first yield of crops takes place around August/September.

History Of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in the United States takes place each year on the fourth Thursday of November. For many Americans, it is equally or more important than Christmas Day. Dating back as far as 1621, pilgrims arriving in Plymouth shared their first successful harvest with Native Americans, who taught them how to cultivate the land, fish, extract maple syrup, and avoid poisonous plants. By the early 1800s, many States declared Thanksgiving an annual holiday. 

Hearty Celebrations

As the United States nears the 401st anniversary of Thanksgiving, US citizens all over the globe will be sharing a meal and celebrating with friends and family. The festival centers around cooking, with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie being the main delicacies on offer. In local communities around the country, generous folk and local charities combine to serve meals to those less fortunate. 

Many towns and cities also put on parades with floats and marching bands. In New York City, Macy’s Department store parade attracts nearly 3 million spectators.
