Thanksgiving Chinese learning

Thanksgiving is not a well-known festival outside North America; actually many people know little about it. However, as an important festival celebrated in both Canada and USA, it is good to get to know about it.  It is also a great opportunity for children to learn Mandarin Chinese at the same time.

When is Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is celebrated in only a few countries such as Canada and USA but on different days. The basic concept of Thanksgiving is to give thanks to nature and the native American Indians for the harvest in the early days of the pilgrims who fled Europe with the Mayflower and started their new lives in the foreign land of America.

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 2nd Monday of October in Canada and on the 4th Thursday of November in the United States.
