Thanksgiving is a harvest festival, which means that it is a festival that gives thanks for the harvest.
There are lots of thanksgiving festivals around the world with the most well known one being the USA Thanksgiving Day, celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, which means that Thanksgiving Day is on November 26th in 2009.
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade is one of the most famous parades in the world and the 83rd annual parade takes place this year.
A lot of people have both Thursday and Friday off work so the Thanksgiving holiday weekend stretches over four days when families and friends gather all around the US for the celebration, the focus of which is often the traditional turkey meal accompanied by potatoes, cranberry sauce and vegetables.
Turkeys are big birds and there is often leftover turkey meat that needs to be eaten over the long weekend.
One tasty way to use up some of the leftover turkey is to make a turkey curry and there are some great turkey curry recipes on the Curry Focus website for you to try. Leftover turkey curry is delicious and easy to make – the turkey has already been cooked for the main meal so the curry can be made in less than 30 minutes.
So instead of picking at the leftovers and making turkey sandwiches, why not make a yummy curry this year?
