Thanksgiving, in the USA, is on Thursday the 28th November. The day celebrates the survival of the Pilgrim Fathers first year in the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts in America. Having fled persecution in Britain to Holland, the group decided to set up across the Atlantic. They sailed from Plymouth Rock in the Mayflower across the Atlantic Ocean. The journey took over a month and a half. The boat wasn’t very big and met storms on it’s way.
Every year, Americans meet up for a family dinner to celebrate Thanksgiving They eat Roast Turkey with cranberry sauce and Pumpkin pie for afters, much as we do on Christmas Day in Britain – except that we have Christmas pudding!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American viewers and readers
