Thanksgiving 2021: When is Thanksgiving – Why do Americans celebrate it?

Thanksgiving became an official holiday in 1939 when President Franklin D Roosevelt approved it through Congress.

Although Thanksgiving may originally have had religious significance, the day has become a mostly secular holiday.

Most Americans consider the holiday a day to gather and express their thanks through food, family, and football – with multiple NFL teams games taking place on the holiday.

Like Christmas, a huge traditional feast is had, including turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and root vegetables.
