Every nation has its own culture and traditions. What concerns America, the first thing we learn about it is its unique holidays. American holidays are so special and extraordinary because they do not occur anywhere else in the world and there are so many of them.
One of the most famous and special days of the year is the fourth Thursday of November when Americans show how thankful they are for the food harvested by the end of the year. The holiday is called Thanksgiving Day. The most inspiring thing about it is that the holiday shows the real spirit of America. Sometimes people from other countries do not understand the meaning of this holiday but still enjoy the way it is celebrated. The tradition is that families come together; everybody puts away all the daily issues and just enjoys communication with each other, as well as delicious turkey which is the most important dish on the holiday table. Americans know all the meals, as they eat some of them almost every day, but this time the dishes are served in a special way, and the atmosphere allows everybody be fully absorbed with the holiday. A combination of friendly atmosphere, great cuisine and positive emotions makes this holiday very unique and hard to be compared to anything else around the globe.
Another interesting fact is that unlike in any other country, all the institutions are closed, as well as shops and malls. Every single person tries to become fully engaged in the celebration. Some people even believe that Thanksgiving Day more important holiday than Christmas, as its origin is purely American.
To cut a long story short, if you ever come to America, do not miss your chance to celebrate this holiday with a company of good friends or relatives – you will never regret this marvelous experience.
