Thanksgiving In New York!

Celebrate this special holiday with us!
While most American holidays, such as Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day are about paying tribute to war heroes, Thanksgiving is about sharing. Proclaimed a holiday in 1863 by President Lincoln, the celebration was the first one between the Pilgrims and Native Americans.
In New York City, you can see the importance of Thanksgiving with the Macy’s Day Parade. Watched by over 3.5 million people each year, the spectacle began in 1924.
The Feast
The core of Thanksgiving is its feast, and roasted turkey served with the necessary sides of cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy, and pie.
