Dear Readers,

Dear Readers,

Thanksgiving is one of the most important festivals in the USA. It is a national holiday celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November month. As the name shows thanksgiving is celebrated to pay thanks. This festival is celebrated after the harvest, and often locally harvested crops are included in the feast organized this day.
