American Thanksgiving traditions revolve around a huge and lavish meal, usually with Turkey as the centrepiece. As tradition has it in most families, a special prayer of thanks precedes the meal. In many homes, family members will each mention something they are very thankful for.
Apart from food, the biggest Thanksgiving traditions are football and parades. In ancient harvest festivals, people usually celebrated with games and sports, so you could argue the football tradition has very deep roots. Some people choose to express their gratitude by giving back to the community. Volunteer activities, such as helping out at a soup kitchen or at a shelter, are popular ways to spend Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving is all about warm autumn colours, hot drinks, delicious warm food, family gatherings and autumn harvest that you can also use to decorate your whole house with for this special occasion. Hope my selection will inspire you.
