In which countries is Thanksgiving celebrated?

Every year, millions of people around the world celebrate one of the most popular traditional festivals: the day of Thanksgiving. This will greatly draws attention to many, as often thought that it is a celebration that belongs only to North America. Have not you ever wondered where they celebrated Thanksgiving or if anything is as important outside that territory? Well today we will learn various aspects of the day of Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Day

To better understand why the day is celebrated Thanksgiving in countries where this is done, let’s start talking about what is in itself. Primarily and historically it is a festival of religious nature related to crops. Essentially and beyond the different ways in which it is carried out, for example today, this is it and actually held in various parts of the world.

Why? Because the festivities of this type have been developed from ancient times to celebrate a good harvest and a productive year between family and loved ones. Although different countries are held at different times and in different ways, the origin of the celebration is often attributed to the North American region, particularly the United States and Canada.

On this day, the whole family gets together and a great feast for dinner is prepared. At dinner each participant welcomes your blessings: it is thanks to God for the bounty of the year, as well as the loved ones and family members who have provided support in the course of it. The banquet usually consists of a main and traditional dish, for example in the United States with a particular turkey cornbread stuffing and sage, accompanied by sauces or jellies sweets and many vegetables are prepared, as well as nuts and fruits dry.

Countries which celebrate Thanksgiving Day

The day of Thanksgiving in the US

As already he mentioned, even though virtually all cultures have a celebration exactly or very similar to this, undeniably, none is as popular as the US. In the US Thanksgiving Day (Thanksgiving Day) is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.

Thanksgiving Day in Canada

Another country with tradition this celebration is Canada, although there is celebrated on the second Monday of October.
What happens elsewhere in the world

Moreover it is noteworthy that, in its way, is also celebrated in several parts of India, where the party takes names as Thai Pongal, Baisakhi, Lohri and Onam, among others. It is not completely the same festival and although all have a background that itself may be considered identical, each is very different from another.

Perhaps most interesting, at least I so consideré- it is that Thanksgiving Day is also celebrated in parts of Asia. Examples are the celebrations of crops in China, Malaysia and Korea. However, there is something that characterizes all these alike and is the harmonious and peaceful atmosphere of gratitude, peace, peace and love of family.
