US Culture: A Family Celebration for the Thanksgiving Holiday

"Our heartfelt greetings to everyone in your Family and Friends during this 2009 Thanksgiving Day"

"This harvest meal has become a symbol of cooperation and interaction between English colonists and Native Americans. Although this feast is considered by many to the very first Thanksgiving celebration, it was actually in keeping with a long tradition of celebrating the harvest and giving thanks for a successful bounty of crops."

The Thanksgiving Story

"The Pilgrims who sailed to this country aboard the Mayflower were originally members of the English Separatist Church (a Puritan sect). They had earlier fled their home in England and sailed to Holland (The Netherlands) to escape religious persecution. There, they enjoyed more religious tolerance, but they eventually became disenchanted with the Dutch way of life, thinking it ungodly. Seeking a better life, the Separatists negotiated with a London stock company to finance a pilgrimage to America."

In the Modern American Society:
Every Thanksgiving Holiday, it has been passed through in American generations that it is time to visit families and friends across the globe.  This is the time of the year when many Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving Day with foods and revelry and most particular having a Turkey at the center of the festive table. 

Although some members of society, they do not celebrate Thanksgiving Day.  This is an optional celebration to some cultural clusters like celebrating Christmas Day or Hanukka and other cultural celebrations.

Planning your Thanksgiving Party?
We wish you the best of  fun and enjoyment ...  how about experimenting a dish with an 'organic apple butter'! that will complement your Turkey. And then report to us how was it and what did you cook?
