I wish to you and your folks a happy Thanksgiving. As a French person, Thanksgiving is not really a tradition to me. I started celebrating this event while I started dating my wife. I love this holliday because it allows you to bond with your familly. It is great, especially as it comes right before Christmas.
Also, the day past Thanksgiving is black friday, a very important day for retailers as it marks the day retailers break the even point, and it is one of the busiest day of the year. I wish to all of the US retailers also a great Black Friday Day.
