    Celebrating Thanksgiving: Dinner of Turkey and Cranberry Sauce

    According to Wikipedia, "Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a traditional North American holiday, which is a form of harvest festival. The date and whereabouts of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention, though the earliest attested Thanksgiving celebration was on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida. Despite scholarly research to the contrary, the traditional "first Thanksgiving" is venerated as having occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621.

    Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Thanksgiving dinner is done in the evening, usually as a gathering of friends and/or family. At this time you say all your thanks and wishes."

    In the Philippines, in spite of its colonial past with the US, celebrating Thanksgiving with dinners of turkey is not well known and observed. It's mostly Americans and Canadians living in the Philippines as well as Filipino-Americans who've absorbed traditional Thanksgiving dinners in the "states"

    Want to catch Thanksgiving dinners here? Many hotels and restaurants in malls and major cities offer Thanksgiving dinner buffet to celebrate the event. Those looking for turkey to cook can look in malls and deli shops for turkey and cranberry to make the usual tangy cranberry sauce.

    As for Tutubi, everything should be Thanksgiving day, no need for an expensive turkey dinner particularly in these hard times. No need to know where to buy turkey and cranberry juice :P
