Thanksgiving, for all intents and purposes, is primarily an American holiday. It is one of the core holidays that the citizens of the United States use to plan their entire year around and it is certainly one of the most beloved holidays in the United States. Beyond that, it is also an economically and historically important holiday. Most people will tend to try and have a small event on or around the fourth Thursday in November; inviting over their close friends and family to partake in a delicious meal and enjoy each others company. Each family or group of friends have their own unique set of Thanksgiving traditions that they have come to embrace and anticipate all year long.
If you're still in the process of making your way home for the holidays, don't fret because Auto Europe is still offering great rates on last-minute car rentals this Thanksgiving! Being one of the few holidays that Americans get off of work during the year, it is the perfect time to spend enjoying the annual Thanksgiving traditions we have become accustomed to, while maybe also trying out some things that are not so typical of the rest of the year.
Here are some of the more unique Thanksgiving traditions that one might find in America:
Unlike the United States, the majority of other countries do not celebrate Thanksgiving as Americans know it. With that being said, you don't have to look very hard to find some unique celebrations that take place during the same time of the year, which might be worth checking out for people who are planning to use the Thanksgiving holiday as a travel occasion. This is especially true in the countries surrounding the United States. It is also true in some European countries. In Canada, the celebration is very similar to the one in the United States, though it falls during a slightly different time of the year.
Here are some of the various traditions someone might find during Thanksgiving in other parts of the world:
One of the uniform expectations that many people have when they think about Thanksgiving is family, being with your closest network of people is one of the best aspects of the Thanksgiving season. For something a little different, consider shaking things up a bit this year. Bring something new to the table. Maybe develop a new tradition. Something to keep in mind this holiday season is that your family is one of the core groups that you will have with you throughout your lifetime. One way to strengthen your bond with your family is through travel. Many Americans will be traveling this Thanksgiving to be near their loved ones, but what about planning a family trip together? Few things can offer a group a more special bond than being on the road together, seeing new sights, and relying on each other.
