In 1620, the ship ³Mayflower´ arrived to the East coast of the USA.

More than 100 British pilgrims stayed to live there.

Winter was difficult and they were very hungry. The native indians helped them

Next year, they had a lot of food. They celebrated a party with the Native Americans (the Wampanoag).

This party was named THANKSGIVING. Today it is celebrated in the USA, on the 4th Thursday of November.

Americans have a big dinner with their families and prepare delicious dishes, specially the ³STUFF TURKEY´

It is an important festival. There is no school. In big cities there are STREET PARADES.
