La tradizione più popolare in America (apart from Christmas!) ha luogo in momenti diversi:
|In the United States:
Thanksgiving is observed on the every fourth Thursday of November. The holiday is celebrated in remembrance of the pilgrims and in order to give thanks.
|In Canada:The Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of the month (the reason for the earlier date in October is their earlier harvest occurring farther to the north).
The Canadian holiday comes from different traditions although it is now meant to convey thanks for their harvest.
