Black Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Another popular and family tradition is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, which has been held in New York City since 1924. The day after Thanksgiving is considered the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S. since 1952. Thanksgiving is a traditional Western holiday, established by the American people in 1621. Initially, the date of Thanksgiving was temporarily established by the government after independence from the United States. Usually more than a million people can dance and enjoy the parade on the streets, but this year the parade is held as a “pure TV special show” for two days, with 75% fewer participants. This event, which Americans call “The First Harvest Festival,” was celebrated by pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621 with the Vampanoag Indians. Humans usually fill a turkey with a variety of spices and mixed products calledfillings’ and then cook it whole until the skin of the turkey becomes dark brown. According to one study, many people who attend Thanksgiving take a nap: 60 percent men versus 56 percent women. For many years, it was customary to open at 6 a.m., but by the end of the 2000s, many people were sneaking out until 5 or 4 a.m.. Participants wore live costumes, such as floats, which passed by professional groups, and in one case even live animals borrowed from the Central Park Zoo took part. One of the most popular Thanksgiving shows was watching the National Football League. Despite the fact that this year everything is different, small meetings of family and close friends, as well as sleep are planned. Americans have been watching the NFL games on Thanksgiving since 1920.
