But, do you know why do Americans celebrate it?
Originally a holiday to give thanks for the autumn harvest to Americans, Thanksgiving is now all about celebrating food, family and friends. The fourth Thursday of November is a Thursday stuffed with turkey, cranberry sauce and doorsteps of pecan pie
Thanksgiving can be traced back to 1621 where refugees from England, known as Pilgrims, invited the local Native Americans to a harvest feast after they experienced a successful season of productivity growth.
The first Thanksgiving did not include turkey, but rather a three-day feast of goose, lobster, cod and deer.

Curiosity tip: Why do Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving?
Americans eat over 50 million turkeys at Thanksgiving and while there are multiple claims as to why turkeys are used, the most likely would be because turkeys are native to North America and would have been an easy choice for the early settlers.
Pilgrim Edward Winslow wrote a letter about that now-famous meal in 1621 which mentioned a turkey hunt before the dinner.
Another theory says the choice of turkey was inspired by Queen Elizabeth I who was eating dinner when she heard that Spanish ships had sunk on their way to attack England. She was so thrilled with the news she ordered another goose be served. Some claim early US settlers roasted turkeys as they were inspired by her actions.
