Thanksgiving – Families Coming Together

0

Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated by many people in the United States and Canada. In the United States, it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November and marks the start of the Christmas season. Some people celebrate Thanksgiving to remember the first harvest of the pilgrims and puritans, groups of people from England who immigrated to North America in the 1600s. Some people recreate the first Thanksgiving and dress up as pilgrims, puritans, and the Native Americans who are said to have helped the new arrivals find food to survive their first winter.

感恩节是美国和加拿大许多人庆祝的节日。在美国,它于11月的第四个星期四庆祝,标志着圣诞节季节的开始。有些人庆祝感恩节来纪念朝圣者和清教徒的第一批收成,他们是从英格兰在1600年代移民到北美的一群人。有些人重新制作了第一个感恩节,并打扮成朝圣者,清教徒和美国原住民,他们帮助新来的人找到了度过第一个冬天的食物。

Most people, however, see Thanksgiving as one day a year to reflect upon what they are thankful for. Some families will sit together and take turns saying aloud what they are thankful for. An important part of Thanksgiving is families coming together. Extended family members often travel long distances to share the day with their loved ones. In the United States Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year. People travel in planes, trains, buses, and cars to share a very special meal – Thanksgiving dinner.

但是,大多数人将感恩节视为一年中的一天,以反思他们所感恩的事物。一些家庭会坐在一起,轮流大声说他们要感谢的东西。感恩节的重要组成部分是家人团聚。大家庭成员经常长途旅行,与亲人分享一天。在美国,感恩节是一年中最忙的一天。人们乘飞机,火车,公共汽车和汽车旅行,分享非常特别的一餐-感恩节晚餐。

What most Thanksgiving celebrations have in common is food. On Thanksgiving, many families prepare large, elaborate dinners to share with friends and loved ones. Many of these dinners use ingredients associated with the fall harvest, like cranberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, and blueberries. Roast turkey is the traditional meat served. It is so common that some people call Thanksgiving Day “Turkey Day”. The turkey is usually served with gravy and stuffing. Pies are usually served for dessert. The most common pies served are sweet potato, apple, pecan, and pumpkin.

大多数感恩节庆祝活动的共同点是食物。感恩节期间,许多家庭准备了精心准备的大型晚餐,与亲朋好友分享。这些晚餐中的许多都使用与秋季收获相关的成分,例如小红莓,土豆,地瓜,玉米和蓝莓。烤火鸡是传统的肉类。有人将感恩节称为“土耳其日”非常普遍。火鸡通常搭配肉汁和馅料。馅饼通常用作甜点。最常见的馅饼是地瓜,苹果,山核桃和南瓜。

Thanksgiving is not just celebrated in the privacy of people’s homes. Every year the President of the United States pardons a turkey, saving it from becoming someone’s meal. In New York City, Macy’s, a department store, holds a large parade with huge balloons of various cartoon characters floating down the street.

感恩节不仅在人们的家中庆祝。每年,美国总统都赦免火鸡,以免火鸡成为别人的饭菜。在纽约,百货公司梅西百货(Macy’s)举行大型游行,街道上飘扬着各种卡通人物的大气球。
