I didn’t even know it was Thanksgiving today, until my biology teacher, who’s from Massachusetts, mentioned it. Thanksgiving has its roots in religious worship days and harvest festivals, and now it’s a time to spend with family and friends. In America, it seems to be bigger than Christmas, with larger groups of friends and family getting together. It’s a shame that we don’t do Thanksgiving here in the UK, because I think it would be pretty fun.
Jimmy Fallon did a Pros and Cons of Thanksgiving, which was pretty interesting to watch.
