Thanksgiving is a federal holiday in the United States, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It originated as a harvest festival.
According to legend, the pilgrims and the Native American Indians celebrated the first Thanksgiving with a feast.
Today, most Americans celebrate with friends and family. A turkey is at the center of the table along with stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and pumpkin pie.
Happy Thanksgiving, from your American family to our brothers and sisters in Western Kenya and around the globe!!!
