Thanksgiving Traditions in Usa, Illinois

Each year Americans in the United States celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, but many have their own traditions that they follow each year.

This day is images (2)associated with “Turkey Day.”

Travel
One of the best things about Thanksgiving is spending time with family. It is very common that people travel long distances by car, train, or plane to be with their families

The Food

Traditional foods are a large part of Thanksgiving celebrations.  Traditional foods include turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, cornbread, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Many people serve pie for dessert at the end of the meal. Popular pie flavors are pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato, and apple.

The Wishbone

Some families include breaking the turkey’s wishbone as part of their celebration.  After the meat has been removed and the wishbone has become dry , two people each take one end of the bone, make a wish, and pull.

Whoever ends up with the larger part of the bone gets their wish!

Israel and Argentina connect

Meeting kids from somewhere in the world is a great a pleasure. Being together for some time talking as if we knew each other, as if we were neighbours…in spite of the great distance differences as well as the different time zones where we live in.

Some students from Argentina met synchronically with a class in Israel. Kids were about to have lunch in Argentina ,almost midday, and it was around 6pm in Israel.

The funny thing about the meeting is that the classes did not know where they where! Even though the two are part of the global team! So they played a mystery location game!

When they discovered their countries it was a great surprise and each class asked the other class about their habits and likes. It was great to discover that both classes listen to Ed Sheeran, Luis Fonsi, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber.  We had a laugh when students in Argentina sang ” Despacito” the trendy song !

Another great moment was when the kids taught us how to say “Hello” in Hebrew.descarga (2)

We loved this!!!!

Both classes talked about the New Year Celebrations and they could compare and contrast rituals and food traditions

It was a golden opportunity to meet Ms Gali and her class!!!!

A Contribution from Hong Kong!!

The teacher says:

“Every day at our school here in Hong Kong, our Primary Film Team produces a film where students or teachers introduces the lunch menu of the day. The show is sent to a list of subscribers per e-mail every morning.
This one is for today. #tastylife17
