感恩节是美国的传统节日,在每年11月的第四个星期四。

每逢感恩节这一天,许多人会满怀温情回顾移民历史。美国举国上下会热闹非常,基督徒按照习俗前往教堂做感恩祈祷,城市乡镇到处都有化装游行、戏剧表演或体育比赛等。分别了一年的亲人们也会从天南海北归来,一家人团圆,品尝以“火鸡”为主的感恩节美食。
Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a religious holiday, as a time to give thanks to God for the blessings in one’s life. People can be thankful for things like their good health, the safety of their families, or having good friends. All of these things are called ‘blessings’, or things that God has given us. For Americans who are not religious, thankfulness is just a feeling of gratitude. It is easy to forget how lucky we are, so Thanksgiving is a time to be reminded of the priceless things in our lives. Many families talk about what they are thankful for as they are sitting around the dinner table before they start the meal.
