Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is a very family holiday. All family members go to the church and after gather around the table where traditional dishes are a roasted turkey, a pumpkin cake, mashed potatoes and an extremely tasty cranberry sauce. On this holiday people make small thanksgiving presents for each other like cards with lots of thankful words. At metro stations you can find tables where you may leave thanksgiving day gifts for people who don’t have enough money. Americans believe that today they have to feed people who have nothing to eat- homeless people. We need to share our food because we never know what can happen to us the next day. People decorate houses with leaves and make different handmade turkey decorations. They also go to parades. It is not accepted to make presents on this holiday, but it can be a not big symbolic present. Thanksgiving present ideas can be a basket full of different goodies like pumpkin pies, candies, cookies. Flowers are appropriate as they reflect colors of autumn. But the best present by itself is the time spent in your family surrounding.
