Why do Americans celebrate Thanksgiving?

It is a tradition in the United States to celebrate Thanksgiving Day every fourth Thursday of November.

Americans have been celebrating Thanksgiving since time immemorial. It is said that the first ever Thanksgiving was marked in 1598 in the Texas city of El Paso but most people believe that the event is held to remember the Pilgrim's harvest celebration in Plymouth, Massachusetts 391 years ago. Thanksgiving was not considered a national holiday until first US President George Washington proclaimed it in 1789.

The main reason why Americans hold Thanksgiving Day is to express their gratitude for everything they have. This is the time of the year when they can celebrate with their friends and family. Usually, Thanksgiving is marked with a feast consisting of turkey, vegetables, pumpkin pie, potatoes, and others. Parades are also held across the country, while special events are rolled out. Businesses, schools and other establishments are often closed during Thanksgiving so as to allow employees and students to share the day with people close to them. Many establishments and government agencies even give a four-day holiday to their staff during this time.

Tips for Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner

Anyone, who has hosted Thanksgiving dinner, knows it is a mammoth undertaking.

To reduce the strain of preparing and cleaning up your Thanksgiving meal, here are guidelines to help you.

Delegate responsibilities. Defrosting, washing, stuffing, roasting, and carving the turkey is a large task. Ask invitees to bring side dishes. This could include mashed potatoes, yams, home-made cranberry sauce, and green-bean casserole (yuck!). Assign someone the task of making and baking holiday pies. Ask someone else to bring a few pre-meal snacks.

Organize a cleaning brigade. Get people scraping down dishes and discarding scraps into the green recycle bin. Instruct them to put all plastic, glass, aluminum, and paper packaging into the blue bin. Have each person perform a task in handling the dishwashing duties. Assign roles of washer, rinser, wiper, and storer.
