In America, Thanksgiving traditions revolve around the family and an enormous meal, normally with turkey as the centerpiece. Included with the turkey most will have a generous amount of potatoes (although, the Irish brought the potato to America long after the first Thanksgiving), gravy, dressing or stuffing and an assortment of vegetables. As tradition has it in most families, a special prayer of thanks precedes the meal. In many homes, family members will each mention something they are very thankful for. Everyone, enjoy your day with family and friends.
