Thanksgiving Day USA 2016 is one of the most popular traditional festivals in the United States of America. This is the so-called "Thanksgiving Day", and occurs every year on the fourth Thursday of November. Similarly, the same festival also takes place in Canada, the first Monday of October.
Thanksgiving Day USA 2016 is a recurrence of Christian origin. It represents an act of gratitude to God for the harvest, and for what was received during the past year. It is a ceremony that has its roots far back in time. In fact, it is necessary to return to the year 1621, when the Pilgrim Fathers, persecuted in their England, decided to migrate to the United States. Here, in spite of the expectations, they found an area extremely dry and not very fertile.
After a long period of hardship, hunger and death, they found a valid contribution in the Native Americans. The latter, taught him the techniques of cultivation of maize and animal breeding, and in particular of Turkey, today, symbol of the anniversary.
Americans love this party. It is the perfect time to invite friends and relatives and consume, all together, the fateful lunch of Thanksgiving Day 2016. A ritual prayer, and then, all to fiondarsi on succulent turkey (generally roasted), pumpkin pies, mashed potatoes and other typical dishes.

Kanoa recalls that the following Friday is the so-called Black Friday, which officially marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in New York.
Thanksgiving Day USA 2016 takes place all over the American territory. In the main US metropolises, you can attend the many national parades. Without a doubt, the most interesting events, in our opinion, take place in New York. Do not miss the Macy's Parade in New York, a parade of masked floats all along Fifth Avenue.
Kanoa remembers being in the front row at about 9, to attend the parade for free. We recommend arriving well in advance, considering the massive presence of visitors.
The parade will start at the intersection of 77th Street and Central Park West. Then, continue along Central Park West to Columbus Circle, where the long serpentine of people will deviate on Broadway through Times Square to end, finally, on 34th Street, where there are Macy's stores.
