Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving
Friendsgiving is a way to celebrate Thanksgiving with your friends. This is usually celebrated before the classic big family day. It is usually a less informal dinner, but in recent years has grown to become increasingly popular. The word Friendsgiving appeared around 2007 on Twitter and Usenet Posts and has since grown as a phenomenon.
Thanksgiving is celebrated in several countries, including the United States and Canada.
In the United States, the holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November and in Canada on the second Monday of October. From the beginning, Thanksgiving was a harvest festival with religious elements, but the holiday is also celebrated as thanksgiving for the founding of the nation.
Thanksgiving is a big family holiday in the United States and an important family dinner, when turkey is served, among other things. The accessories are often sweet potatoes in various forms, Brussels sprouts and cranberry sauce.
