If we were to ask you what preparations you have made for thanksgiving, (November 22nd), many of you would reply puzzled, or somewhat lost.

We all know of thanksgiving, whether it be through films or pop culture, we all know of it. But for those who don’t, Thanksgiving is an American tradition, celebrated once a year with a glorious display of soul foods, and family members (Not to be confused with Christmas). The national holiday happens on the fourth Thursday of November, and consists of Roast turkey, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.

What many of us don’t know, is that thanksgiving was once a British tradition, celebrated by many British families across the nation. So what is stopping us from reviving a discontinued tradition? We encourage all of you to get in the spirit and take a try at thanksgiving celebrations this year.
