On the 4th Thursday in November, Americans take time to reflect and be grateful for the numerous blessings in their lives. Many individuals place a great value on happy and anticipated reunions with family and friends.

Thanksgiving is a federal holiday recognised on specific days in the United States, Canada, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia. It began as a day of gratitude for the crops and benefits of the previous year.

In Germany and Japan, there are festivals with similar titles. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October in Canada, the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, and other nations around the same time. Despite its historical origins in cultural and religious rituals, Thanksgiving has long been recognised as a secular holiday.

Given the coronavirus epidemic that delayed Thanksgiving celebrations last year, Google is marking the holiday with merely an illustrated doodle that symbolises togetherness this year. In Thursday's Google Doodle, the traditional components of a traditional Thanksgiving feast joyfully join in a merry march, reminiscent of the 1950s movie theatre intermission advertisement Let's All Go to the Lobby.

A gravy boat leads the Doodle's Christmas carnival, which includes an ear of corn, a yam, a potato, a slice of pumpkin pie, and a cranberry (since everyone is genuinely watching its trip around the table). In 1789, President George Washington created the yearly habit of expressing thankfulness, and in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln designated it a national holiday, which will be celebrated for the 400th time this year.

Thanksgiving was shifted to the fourth Thursday of November in 1941 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and it is now synonymous with turkey, stuffing, and the traditional pumpkin pie.
