When is Thanksgiving?

In America, Thanksgiving is always celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving Day is celebrated as the National holiday in the United States to commemorate the harvest reaped by the Plymouth Colony in 1621 after a winter of great starvation. It was proclaimed a National Holiday in 1863, by Abraham Lincoln. All the offices and schools remain closed during this day, while all the financial and government offices are also closed. Earlier it used to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November, but in 1941, under Presidential proclamation, the day was shifted to the fourth Thursday of November, and ever since it is the same.

Thanksgiving 2011 will fall on Thursday, the 24th of November.
