Thanksgiving in Florence
Where to celebrate on 23 November

Who doesn’t remember at least one scene from an American film or TV series featuring a loaded table with the famous stuffed turkey at the centre?

It’s the quintessential American feast: Thanksgiving Day – celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States and the second Monday of October in Canada – is the occasion to thank friends and relations for their small and large gifts in the year that’s ending, just as in 1621 the Pilgrim Fathers thanked the Lord for their first harvest, thus starting the tradition.
