Thanksgiving is a public holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November throughout the United States. It originated as a harvest festival of giving thanks and although it has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, has long been celebrated in a secular manner centered around food, family, and friends celebrating together.
