Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in the U.S. on the fourth Thursday of November. It is a national holiday with roots in the English traditional practices dating back to the Protestant Reformation. Thanksgiving captures various aspects of a harvest festival including celebrating and giving thanks for the bountiful harvest of the year. Thanksgiving Day is observed with both religious and secular connotations. The religious aspects of the celebration are marked by offering prayers of thanks for the year’s blessings. The secular aspects are observed through family get-togethers, hearty feasts, and watching parades and football games.
Thanksgiving is often the most lavish and well-attended dinner of the year with family members and friends traveling long distance to be together on this special occasion. Loved ones reconnect over the Thanksgiving dinner, often after long periods of not seeing each other.
The ubiquitous turkey is the centerpiece of every Thanksgiving dinner, whether roasted or fried. Other staples include cranberry relish, dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, green beans, and desserts such as pumpkin, apple, or pecan pie.
Thanksgiving Day is accentuated by decorations to reflect the themes of the turkey dinner, a bountiful harvest, and praise and thanksgiving for all the year’s blessings. Since most Thanksgiving activities center around the kitchen, consider turning your appliances into works of holiday art with appliance covers from Appliance Art.
Some of the appliance covers that depict various Thanksgiving themes include the following:
