Thanksgiving is the U.S. family holiday

The Thanksgiving holiday was created by the U.S. government as part of the effort to create one people out of many. More than Christmas, Easter or other big holidays, this is the time when people travel to have a meal with their families.

“A comer pastel, a comer lechón, arroz con gandules, y a beber ron, Que venga morcilla, venga de todo” from La Fiesta de Pilito (1985) by El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico

Frankly, every day in Puerto Rico feels like Thanksgiving. All we do here is get together with family to eat, drink, sing and dance.
