season.In the United States, this day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October.


In the United States, certain kinds of food are traditionally served at Thanksgiving meals. First and foremost, turkey is usually the featured item on any Thanksgiving feast table (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes referred to as "Turkey Day"). Stuffing,
mashed potatoes with grawn, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, other fallI vegetables, and pumpkin pie are commonly
associated with Thanksgiving dinner. All of these primary dishes are actually native to the America or were introduced as a new food source
to the Europeans when they arrived.

The Pilgrims were particularly thankful to Squanto, the Native American who taught them how to catch eel, grow corn

and who served as an interpreter for them (Squanto had learned English as a slave in Europe). Without Squanto's help
the Pilgrims might not have survived in the new world. The explorers who later came to be called the "Pilgrims" set apart
a day to celebrate at Plymouth immediately after their first harvest, in 1621. At the time, this was not regarded as a
Thanksgiving observance. They assemble their families both, Indians and Pilgrims to have dinner together
