Happy American Thanksgiving 2017! What is the history behind the US national ... If you're in the mood for a festive celebration, Thanksgiving might be the holiday for you. Of course, it's an American national holiday, but the vast majority of people in the UK are at least vaguely aware of Thanksgiving Day. Featuring in any number of films out there, it involves families coming together to share a feast centred around turkey, take in massive parades and watch American football.
