n the US, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the Thursday – the fourth week of November. But some people mistakenly think this holiday took place on the last Thursday of November.
November has 5 days on Thursday (1, 8, 15, 22, 29). However, Thanksgiving falls on November 22. Right after Thanksgiving is Black Friday – a shopping day with a huge variety of discount items.According to BBC History Magazine, Thanksgiving is the first American traditional style held in 1621 in the Plymouth colony in Massachusetts when British pilgrims shared meals with the Indians, to show their gratitude to the Indians and to celebrate the first harvest in the new land.
