｜ Heartful tradition is the origin of Thanksgiving
Around 1600, residents of England, who started a new life in the United States, could not get used to the new land and could not store food for the winter. Thanksgiving is attributed to the heartfelt tradition that Native Americans, who should have been in conflict, shared food and all surrounded the table.
｜ How is modern Thanksgiving celebrated?
Even now, in the United States, the tradition of gathering together as a family and surrounding a feast with a large number of people remains strong.
They start preparing food in the morning or the day before, and in the afternoon the men watch American football on TV and play outside with their children.
At night, autumn American soul food such as turkey, ham, gratin, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie decorate the table.
Thanksgiving is held on the 3rd Thursday of November, but Black Friday, the annual big sale on the 3rd Friday, is also a big hit.
It looks like Japanese New Year and the first sale.
This sale starts in the middle of Thanksgiving night, so as soon as the meal is over, energetic young people and their parents will go shopping. Since it is a big sale once a year, many families prepare Christmas gifts at this time.
And it is a typical Thanksgiving process for small children to play board games at home with their grandmothers and take an answering machine.
｜ Thanksgiving in Japan
Thanksgiving has been popular in Japan for several years, and recently there are restaurants that serve turkey, but Thanksgiving is still shallow and has not become mainstream.
However, recently, you can often see Black Friday sales on major mail-order sites.
As a consumer, I'd be happy if the sale culture alone would be popular.
