Turkey Day

What does Turkey Day mean?

‘Turkey Day’ is another way of saying ‘Thanksgiving Day’

When you hear the term ‘Turkey Day’, it’s simply a more casual and fun way of talking about Thanksgiving Day. This popular American holiday takes place on the fourth Thursday of November every year. It’s called ‘Turkey Day’ because a turkey is usually the star dish on the dinner table.

‘Turkey Day’ is not just a term used to make the holiday sound more laid-back, it’s also a quicker way to say ‘Thanksgiving Day’. The term was coined because of the millions of turkeys that are cooked and eaten every Thanksgiving. These turkeys are often roasted and stuffed, but some people also like to deep fry them.

Thanksgiving Day was declared a federal holiday by President Lincoln during the Civil War in 1863. However, it’s not just celebrated in America. Our neighbors up north in Canada celebrate it too, but on the second Monday of October. It’s also celebrated in Liberia on the first Thursday of November, and on Norfolk Island, it’s observed on the last Wednesday of November. But no matter where it’s celebrated, it’s often referred to as ‘Turkey Day’.
