This year, America’s Thanksgiving Day is Thursday, November 22nd. It is a big holiday in the United States.
I was born in Hawaii. When I lived there, Thanksgiving day was a big holiday for my family too. We went to a relative’s house. We ate with my grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins. We watched (American) football.
Every Thanksgiving, we ate a LOT of food. Every year, my family ate turkey for all of the Thanksgiving weekend, from Thursday to Sunday.
Thursday night: turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and vegetables
Friday: more turkey
Saturday: turkey sandwiches
Sunday: turkey soup
Now I live in Japan. In Japan, I usually go to Subway for Thanksgiving. I eat a turkey breast sandwich. I do not eat turkey for 4 days, and I do not watch football now, but I think about America on this day.
