Thanksgiving tends to be a one day celebration full of food and family. Thanksgiving is the day before, Black Friday, which is the largest Christmas shopping day of the year. In contrast, Christmas must be more prepared for more due to having to buy presents for family and friends in advance of Christmas Day. Christmas is celebrated more than one day, because most people hold a celebration Christmas Eve also. The largest difference between Christmas and Thanksgiving is the reason for the celebrations.
For the most part, the individuals in my family are on top of our rituals. Every year between Black Friday and Christmas time my family and I go to different malls to seek out all of the great discounts.

There are certain ways families celebrate their own rituals and the way that my family and I highlight every holiday (Galvin 119). Lately, this ritual has been slowly dying, but I hope we can have this interest in the future when I have a family on my

This past week was Thanksgiving of 2016. My family hosts Thanksgiving every year and whoever is able to come that year is more than welcome.

Each year on the fourth Thursday in November, Americans gather for a day of feasting, football and family. While today’s Thanksgiving celebrations would likely be unrecognizable to attendees of the original 1621 harvest meal, it continues to be a day for Americans to come together around the table—albeit with some updates to pilgrim’s menu. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, and has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well. The traditional Thanksgiving menu in the United States generally consists of turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce and couple of vegetable casseroles of some kind.
Every Thanksgiving, my immediate family and I go down to Chicago to spend the holiday with more family. We spend Thanksgiving, like everyone else, with football and eating.

Every Thanksgiving my family gets together. When we are together, we always take time out to remember my great-grandmother and my grandmother, Meme and Liz. This year my family gathered at my auntie and uncle’s home. My aunt called all the family members that were coming because she needed to tell them what to bring. When we got there, we sat and watched the football game until the food was finished.
Nearly every holiday of my childhood was spent there, allowing the family to stay in touch year-round. Among those holidays was the Acton Fall Fair, which to us nearly rivalled thanksgiving. Every year we gathered at my grandmother’s for her homemade chilli, watched the parade and attended the fair. Living in Acton would mean reconnecting with my past.
