Thanksgiving - Celebrated the 4th Thursday of November.
In the United States, Thanksgiving is a four day weekend which usually marks a pause in school and college calendars. Most business and government workers (78% in 2007) are also given both Thanksgiving and the day after as paid holidays. Families and friends gather for a reunion, a day of thanks, and a festive meal.

Thanksgiving meals are traditionally family events where certain kinds of food are served. First and foremost, turkey is the featured item in most Thanksgiving feasts (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes facetiously referred to as \"Turkey Day\"). Stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, turnips, and pumpkin pie are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner. Often guests bring food items or help with cooking in the kitchen as part of a happy, communal meal.

In keeping with the holiday theme of giving thanks, during the socializing or meal, people talk about what they are thankful for or tell about experiences during the past year which have caused them to feel grateful.

Today\'s a special occasion for those of us with Scottish connections - it\'s Burns Night, the anniversary of the birth of Scotland\'s national bard, Robert Burns.

People of Scots extraction all over the world will be celebrating \"the immortal memory\" tonight. So happy Burns Night everyone - and here\'s a link to a modern rendition of one of his most famous songs, sung by the inimitable Eddi Reader. Afraid you\'ll have to provide your own haggis, neeps, tatties and whisky though! ;-)
