What happens on Thanksgiving day.

November 27, 2013  Written by Gemma   Published in Funny, On This Day


Thanksgiving is a national holiday in America and Canada. First of all, That means No School.


Thanksgiving is different in every house but some traditions are kept the same. In most houses, you eat pumpkin pie and have a turkey dinner and you give thanks at the start of your dinner.


We usually watch football on tv and play football in the garden of our house.


We watch the thanksgiving parade in the town.


We usually play family board games in the evening and relax after our big dinner.

It´s a lovely family day!
