Trabajo 2ºa acción de gracias

  1. 1. Thanksgiving Day TODAY
  2. 2. Celebrating Thanksgiving with my parents, my grandfather, my brother and my sister. Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
  3. 3. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. Thanksgiving is one of the most important holidays in the United States of America.
  4. 4. My friend Tom sent me this Thanksgiving-card from Canada last October. People in Canada also celebrate Thanksgiving, but they celebrate it on the second Monday in October.
  5. 5. That year we celebrated Thanksgiving at Aunt Emily’s house. Americans usually join their extended family for Thanksgiving dinner. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.
  6. 6. I don’t like travelling these days. I’d rather stay at home. Thanksgiving is a special day for families, and people travel great distances to be with their families for this occasion.
  7. 7. Around 43,6 million of travellers in 2012. Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?...
  8. 8. Delicious!! Isn’t it? (But my grandma should change her carpet). Today the traditional Thanksgiving meal is similar to the first. People eat roast turkey with cranberry sauce, potatoes, corn and pumpkin pie.
  9. 9. Wishbone: Two people each take one end of the bone, make a wish, and pull. Whoever ends up with the larger part of the bone gets their wish!
  10. 10. Last year, we prepared this dinner for my brother’s girlfriend. She is vegetarian. Vegetarians don't eat meat, but they still celebrate Thanksgiving with other foods, such as soy products, rice, fruit, vegetables and big salads.
  11. 11. This parade is very famous. Television also plays a part in Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families watch the New York City Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  12. 12. More than two million people go to see it every year. The parade includes marching bands, floats, songs and performances from Broadway musicals, and giant helium-filled balloons!
  13. 13. I love these giant balloons Macy's department store organised its first parade in 1924.
  14. 14. People may also enjoy televised football games. Most professional football games are played on Sundays, but Thanksgiving is an exception:
  15. 15. Or play themselves in the yard. Frequently, tv series have a special episode about Thanksgiving.
  16. 16. Many charity organizations prepare a free meal for the poor people in their town or city. This is my cousin Emma. She is a very caring person.
  17. 17. My family prefers to sit down together to play board or card games together.. After the feast families often do additional activities. Some like to take walks after eating such a large meal. Some people take naps.
  18. 18. During “Black Friday”, prices are really attractive. The day after Thanksgiving is the first day of Christmas shopping. Stores have sales that start early in the morning to attract shoppers.
