Thanksgiving tradition back to the U.S.

 Friday, November 26, 2021 


On Thursday, Americans flocked to parades, packed football stadiums, and gathered more freely for family feasts. To travel for Thanksgiving, an estimation of 53.4 million people were expected. President Joe Biden announced the country is “back”, on the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

The unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season is marked after midnight of Thanksgiving, approaching a glimpse of the state of the American economy. A turkey dinner with mounds of side dishes and desserts, Thanksgiving also prompts an outpouring of donations to the poor and hungry.

This year, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank offered an annual free food drive, allowing anyone in need to pick up a free meal kit ahead of the holiday. Victoria Lasavath (food bank marketing manager) said ‘Thanksgiving’  can be a happy time of the year for everyone, for food-insecure neighbors it can bring a different type of uncertainty.

Ford Field Stadium in Detroit is packed by fans for the first three National Football League games on Thursday, restoring a spectacle that is part of the Thanksgiving tradition. Last year there were no fans in the stands. Spectators returned to New York’s Thanksgiving Day Parade after last year’s pageant was scaled down and closed to the public.
