In the United States, the fourth Thursday in November is called Thanksgiving Day.
On this day, Americans give thanks for the good things they have had in the past year.
Thanksgiving is another name for the Harvest Festival traditionally held
in Great Britain to mark the end of the local harvest season.
This tradition was taken to North America by early settlers
who celebrated the first American Thanksgiving in 1621.
Most people celebrate Thanksgiving by gathering with family or friends for a holiday feast,
usually with turkey as the centrepiece.
