Good Day dear friends! Today we’ll speak about the celebration of Thanksgiving Day in USA. You will learn some traditions, customs and symbols of this holiday. So, let’s begin with the history of that famous holiday.  

3. Ведущий 2 – история возникновения

Almost in every culture in the world there is a celebration of thanks for rich harvest. The American Thanksgiving began us a feast of thanksgiving almost four hundred years ago.

In 1620, a religious community sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to settle in the New World. They settled in what is now known as the state of Massachusettes. Their first winter in America was difficult. They arrived too late to grow a rich harvest. Moreover, half the colony died from disease. The following spring the Iroquois Indians taught them how to grow corn. Indians showed them also how to grow other crops and how to hunt and fish.

In the autumn of 1621 they got a beautiful harvest of corn, barley, beans and pumpkins. The colonists had much to be thankful for, so they planned a feast. Local Indian chef and ninety Indians were present. The colonists learned from Indians how to cook cranberries and dishes of corn and pumpkins.

In following years many of the colonists celebrated the harvest with a feast of thanks. After the United States gained independence, Congress recommended one yearly day of thanksgiving for the whole country. Later, George Washington suggested the date November 26 as Thanksgiving Day. Then, after the Civil war, Abraham Lincoln suggested the last Thursday in November to be the day of thanksgiving.

On Thanksgiving Day, family members gather at the house of an older relative, even if they live far away. All give thanks for everything good they have. Charitable organizations offer traditional meal to the homeless.


4. Ведущий 3  - Почти в каждой культуре мира существует праздник благодарности за богатый урожай.  В1620 религиозная община переправилась через Атлантический океан и поселилась на территории современного штата Массачусетс. Прибыли они зимой, и поэтому не успели вырастить урожай. Половина колонии умерла от болезней. Индейцы из племени ирокезов научили их выращивать кукурузу, другие овощи и ловить рыбу.

Осенью 1621 года они собрали обильный урожай. Колонисты запланировали праздник в честь благодарности индейцем за помощь. После получения США независимости, один день в году был рекомендован как День благодарения. Раньше его отмечали 26 ноября, а сейчас День благодарения празднуется в последний четверг ноября.      

В день благодарения члены семьи собираются в доме старшего родственника и выражают благодарность за все хорошее, что у них есть.
