Today the Thanksgiving celebration is centred on the Thanksgiving meal and the sharing of it with family. The traditional main course is centred around the Thanksgiving turkey. There is, however. a very lucky turkey each year as the President gives a pardon, the relieved turkey is sent off to a farm where he will see his life out happily!!! Other tasty dishes at Thanksgiving will include stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.
