PIN FOR LATER
Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States, Canada, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
American Thanksgiving Day 2021 occurs on the date Thursday, November 25.
Thanksgiving is not a public holiday here in Australia, but many Aussies may still celebrate it in a similar way to Americans by showing appreciation for their loved ones with a shared meal and expressing gratitude for the things they have been blessed with in life.
In the territory of Norfolk Island, Thanksgiving in Australia is celebrated on the last Wednesday of November.
