Thanksgiving といえば「七面鳥」ですが、もともとは感謝祭に七面鳥は食べられていなかったそうです。


Did you know that turkey wasn’t eaten for Thanksgiving originally?

Oysters and lobsters were served.

the japan times alpha の中にもThanksgiving の歴史が載っていて。。。

Thanksgiving has a complex history.  In 1621, a harvest feast was shared by English colonists and the Native American Wampanoag people.  Legend says this was the beginning of the Thanksgiving tradition.  However, the meal was quite different to modern Thanksgiving meals.  It probably consisted of fish, eels, shellfish and other traditional Wampanoag foods.

アメリカではThanksgiving に、around 46 million turkeys が食されるそうですよ。

This year, Thanksgiving falls on Nov. 23.
