Well, Thanksgiving was founded by the American pilgrims, so naturally it is an American holiday and not universal holiday.


Here is a more well-rounded explanation for Thanksgiving: http://www.christiananswers.net/q-wall/wal-g007.html

It's strange, being a catalyst for things that move outside.

Different countries have different holidays. That's pretty much it.

Well, in a way it is surprising. I mean, Halloween has been introduced here (talking for Sweden and the UK now) quite successfully, so why not the great turkey meal of Thanksgiving? (Had it twice, and quite loved it!)


On the other hand, when are you Yanks going to celebrate the Queen's birthday? Or the Dutch St. Nicholas' Eve? Or the Swedish Midsummer?


LOL If we celebrated every holiday from every culture all over the world, we'd probably have a holiday every day of the year!


Personally, I think it's nice that different countries celebrate different holidays. It'd get kinda boring if everyone did exactly the same all over the world...

Generalised Thanksgiving greetings via the internet annoyed me intensely yesterday.

there isn't as much money in thanksgiving as there is in halloween.  That is probably why it hasn't been introduced.

Wasn't Halloween introduced to the UK a few centuries BC by the Celts and then morphed into its present form in early middle ages by the christians?
