In the United States, we celebrated a really great holiday this past week, called Thanksgiving.

Every year, on the third thursday in November, families unite and cook a large dinner together, typically served in the afternoon.

The holiday celebrates the legendary dinner that the pilgrims supposedly shared with the native americans before their first winter in North America.

Whether or not this actually happened, it is a great excuse for us to get together with family and also have a couple days off of work.

The dinner menu for thanksgiving dinner typically centers around a big turkey, which is stuffed with bread and vegetable stuffing. Other common side dishes include mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cornbread, vegetables of all kinds, and of course, cranberry sauce.

It is a truly wonderful holiday, and one that doesn't require spending a lot of money; the only thing you have to buy is a turkey!

The purpose of the holiday is to remember all of the things in life that we have to be grateful for, most particularly good friends and family.

Ok everyone, I thought you might not know these words, as they are not really common foods at all in Brazil. You brasileiros have soooo many different fruits, but I don't think you have cranberries! Mmmmmm they are so good.

Cornbread: http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornbread
Cranberry Sauce: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cranberry_sauce
