    Thanksgiving on this side of the pond is celebrated on the last Thursday of November each year because our forefathers felt that date represented the very first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and the Native American Indians.

    There are many traditions associated with Thanksgiving. Here are a few:

    The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City and broadcast on most TV channels for the entire country to enjoy. High school bands from across the country participate and the parade floats are spectacular.

    Football games along with chips and dips.

    Thanksgiving dinner, usually consisting of roast turkey with gravy, and bread stuffing, sweet potatoes and mashed white potatoes, cranberry sauce, various green and yellow vegetables, relishes (olives, pickles, etc.), cornbread as well as other breads, plus whatever other foods a family enjoys. Dessert is usually pie and the favorites are pumpkin, apple, pecan, plus varities specific to a region. Whipped topping on wedges of pie complete the meal.

    Most of these foods represent foods shared at that first Thanksgiving. Corn meal, for example, was introduced to the Pilgrims by the Indians and has become a mealtime favorite in many homes.

    More traditions that usually occur after Thanksgiving dinner are taking longs walks, raking leaves, playing football or basketball, and, of course, napping.

    Thanksgiving is a time when we express our gratefulness for family and friends, peace and harmony, health and happiness -- the harvest of our lives and country.

    End of Thanksgiving story!

    In Canada we have Thanksgiving in October. It is a kind of extended "Harvest Festival" to give thanks for a bountiful harvest and provides a great excuse for the whole family to get together and give thanks for -- well, for being a family and having food on the table. It also gives us an opportunity to donate to the Food Bank to help out folk who are not quite so lucky as we are.

    As for the cook -- it's a great "dress rehearsal" for Christmas!

    This year, I'm lucky. Thanksgiving in Canada, Christmas in the UK. So I get the best of both sides of the pond.
