The land of the brave and the home of the free, has a lot of its national holiday’s steeped in the important events that mark its young history. Two of the biggest include:
Thanksgiving – November
While it was traditionally celebrated to give thanks for the autumn harvest, celebrated the world over, the Americans now use the event to give a wide scope of things they are thankful for in their day-to-day lives.
The American celebration has its tradition from when the pilgrims celebrated with natives due to their successful harvest in 1621, giving rise to a three day feast of dried fruit, pumpkin, turkey, venison and more, setting the precedent for celebrations ever since.
Independence Day – July
Arguably the most important holiday and event on the calendar, Independence Day is a nationwide public holiday characterised by fireworks, barbecues, parades and celebrations of the time when the United States of America signed their Declaration of Independence from England in 1776.
