Not at all. We don't celebrate it all all here, it's like it doesn't exist. I think it's more of an American thing.

Re: Is Thanksgiving Day popular in your place?

It is probably the 2nd or 3rd biggest holiday in the US and Canada. A big family day, usually a big meal being prepared with lots of fresh vegetables, and the main entrée being Turkey.

Is Thanksgiving Day popular in your place?

Thank you, IDN Fers!
short answer no.

longer answer: it's not very popular maybe a bit more popular than in Hong Kong but only slightly to give you an idea.

Halloween seems to have enjoyed a far more widespread adaption.

Yeah. In the States there's no such thing as a "bad" or "good" harvest. It's all soy and corn and futures.

Should we celebrate Thanksgiving during a bad year? Well, maybe, but we definitely would. I'm pretty sure we have celebrated it every year for at least the last 80 years, good or bad.

It's a weird holiday, hard to explain. Just eat a ton of food that you wouldn't normally eat with a bunch of people you wouldn't normally eat with (extended family). Everyone prays to whatever higher power brought them this weird feast (probably Monsanto) and this family of people that wouldn't normally get along does its best for the few hours until they eat the large poultry and root vegetables.

Eventually someone gets tired and has to go home.

That's Thanksgiving.

Re: Is Thanksgiving Day popular in your place?

Here in the USA, Thanksgiving is at least the second most popular holiday and for many, the best. It's a time spent visiting and feasting with family and friends, in celebration / thanksgiving for another good year. Most often (for believers) the family patriarch will offer a thanksgiving prayer to God, for the year's past blessings, before the meal.

Many consider the day before Thanksgiving to be the busiest travel holiday of the year, with lots of flight delays because of it. http://www.travelchannel.com/interes...ng-travel-tips
