IN THE PRESS – Thursday, 25.11.2021: We discuss how both the British and French press are covering the harrowing drownings in the Channel. We also see how the papers are discussing an eventful day in Swedish politics. In the US papers, the verdict in the Ahmaud Arbery trial is something to be thankful for. Finally, on a lighter note, we celebrate Thanksgiving by finding out how turkeys got their name, and if giraffes are more susceptible to lightning strikes because of their height.

  • In This Story: Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
