history-of-thanksgiving-how-it-all-started-meaning-facts-bemorepanda

Thanksgiving Day is an annual one-day celebration in which God is thanked for the richness of that year's harvest. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States and on the second Monday in October in Canada. Bemorepanda loves Thanksgiving Day!

 

When was Thanksgiving Day first celebrated?

Thanksgiving Day, celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday in November, commemorates the miraculous harvest that, in 1621, saved the lives of the first immigrants to arrive in the New World from the British lands.

 

How is Thanksgiving Day celebrated in the US, Canada and the UK?

 

Thanksgiving parades are organized in the United States, with school fanfares. Also in the United States, most businesses are closed on Thursdays and Fridays to allow employees to spend more time with family and friends. The only ones that remain open are the shops, Thanksgiving being followed by Black Friday, the day with the biggest discounts of the year.

 

 

In the United Kingdom, Thanksgiving is another name for Harvest Day and is celebrated in churches and villages on a Sunday after the harvest in that locality, without being a particularly important holiday. This holiday was taken over by the first settlers who arrived in the New World, where it was first celebrated in 1621, as a sign of gratitude for the miraculous harvest obtained in harsh climatic conditions.

 

In December 1941, the US Congress passed a resolution making the fourth Thursday in November officially the national holiday of the Americans.

 

 

In Canada, the roots of the holiday differ from those in the United States. British explorer Martin Frobisher was trying to find a way to the East. He failed, but settled in Canada. In 1578, he held a ceremony to thank God for surviving such a long journey. Other settlers who arrived later continued the tradition.

 

What does Thanksgiving Day entail and what does it mean?

 

For millions of Americans, Thanksgiving means a special day, spent with family and dear friends, who gather at the table and show their appreciation for the rich harvest of the last year.

 

 

Millions of Americans trying to get to another part of the country today, by car or plane, on Thanksgiving Day, face major problems due to weather conditions. Thanksgiving brings together all family members together, which causes most companies to declare days off on both Thursday and Friday to allow employees to spend time with their relatives.

 

Facts about Thanksgiving Day

 

Here's what Thanksgiving Day is for Americans:

 

1. Feast of food

 

Thanksgiving is a holiday that, more than any other, begins and ends with food. Turkey, potatoes, corn and various fillings are all synonymous with this day.

 

2. Show your gratitude by helping others

 

It is easy to enjoy a free day spent with your family and enjoying the most delicious snacks, but you must also think about those in need. Many Americans set aside a little of their time on this day to help families who have nothing to put on Thanksgiving or even invite them to spend time together.

 

 

3. Family also includes friends

 

On Thanksgiving it is important to be grateful. That's why many Americans prefer to spend time with friends and not family or why not bring both groups together.

 

4. Agitation

 

To prepare for this day, the Americans are in a constant hustle and bustle to find the right turkey and the best pies, sauces and fillings to put on the table.

 

5. Travel

 

Many Americans have to go to other cities to spend time with their families, and others who are bored with this tradition take advantage of the two days off and go on a relaxing trip. Whatever they choose, all Americans have something to do on this special day.

10-fun-and-interesting-facts-about-the-national-dog-show-on-thanksgiving-bemorepanda

One of the most iconic events in the world of dog owners will happen this year in the United States of America. The greatest tradition for Thanksgiving Day is to watch the National Dog Show.


For many Americans, the National Dog Show, which selects the best dogs in the country in various categories, has long become something of a Football Super Bowl.


Presented by Purina and hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, the show is about more than 150 American Kennel Club-sanctioned breeds and varieties competing for Best of Breed, First in Group and the top-dog spot: Best in Show. Bemorepanda prepared 10 facts about the National Dog Show.


1.Four-legged participants and their owners make applications six months in advance to be among the contestants.


2.Each dog must pass the strictest selection conditions and meet certain parameters. To do this, you must have special medical certificates confirming the excellent health and impeccable physical fitness of the animal.


3.All animals must be vaccinated and treated against parasites with special drugs such as Advantix.


4.The first event of this magnitude was held in Pennsylvania in 2001. Then the organizers managed to "lure" about a thousand pets to the competition, a year later the number of participants increased threefold, and in 2005 about 100 breeds of dogs came to the exhibition.


5.The American Kennel Club's  birthday is September 17, 1884. It was then that a group of 12 keen dog breeders met at the Philadelphia Kennel Club.


6.National Dog Show is one of the so-called "big trinity" of the most prestigious dog shows in the world.


7.The order of the show is traditional and consists of three stages. Each tailed participant is first judged in the "breed" rings, where the best representative of the breed is selected. The next step is to select the best representative of the group, of which there are seven. The finale of the show is the Best in Show selection - the best of the best.


8.The National Dog Show is NBC's top-rated broadcast of the show airs at noon Thanksgiving Day, immediately following the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. 


9.There may be more than 2,000 dogs entered in the show, but when the coveted Best in Show competition takes place, you'll only see seven dogs. 


10.205 breeds and varieties are eligible to participate in the National Dog Show. However, the majority of viewers choose “out of competition” activities - demonstration performances in different disciplines, where dogs demonstrate contact with the owner, intelligence, speed and strength.

what-is-the-history-of-black-friday-15-fun-and-interesting-facts-you-should-know-bemorepanda

This is a huge traditional sale, a fabulous time when all self-respecting stores are competing to see who has more discounts. Black Friday began in the USA as a great excuse to buy gifts before the Christmas holidays. This is the first Friday after Thanksgiving and falls between November 23rd and 30th. At this time there were always sales, and in the 60s the term "Black Friday" itself appeared.

 

Over time, the wave was picked up by the whole world: the more competition, the more discounts that attract even more people. So this snowball is rolling, causing a crazy stir. Someone needs gifts, someone has been waiting the whole year for the opportunity to buy an expensive thing, and someone enterprisingly buys everything and then sells it at auctions at a higher price.

People wait patiently for Black Friday for months, and then all at once pile on stores and grab goods in an hour. And if the Internet sites at this time simply hang on the number of people, then in real shopping centers madness, crush, assault and other types of simple human fun are happening. Bemorepanda prepared some interesting facts about Black Friday for you:

 

1. In 2020, Black Friday falls on November 29th, which marks the beginning of the biggest sale of the year worldwide. Some stores prefer to open early, and some even agree to work around the clock.

 

2. Aliexpress is perhaps the most popular store during the promotion days, discounts up to 70% on already cheap goods attract crowds of buyers.

 

3. eBay this year promises discounts of up to 50%, you can buy anything on sale: from a food processor to sports equipment, the main thing is to pay attention to the delivery terms.

 

4. For the first time this term sounded on September 24, 1869 during a panic in the US stock market: then the gold rate collapsed by 30%, ruining many small businesses.

 

5. In the fifties of the XX century, severe traffic jams on the roads of Philadelphia, which began after Thanksgiving Day, were dubbed Black Friday - the traffic police could not cope with the traffic collapse.

 

 

6. Massive sales after Thanksgiving have been (and continue to be) a hefty profit.

 

7. In America, sales had an additional meaning: sellers not only got rid of surplus goods in store for Thanksgiving, but also attracted those who wanted to shop early for the Christmas holidays.

 

8. Many sellers sin by raising prices in early to mid-November in order to effectively lower them on the day of the sale (and achieve those same ninety percent discounts). The total discount is obtained either much less than the declared one, or even absent altogether.

 

9.In 2018, according to the estimates of the National Retail Federation of the United States, on Black Friday itself, Americans made $ 6.2 billion (23.6% more than in 2017), and just over the weekend 165 million people were shopping.

 

10. Despite the proliferation and increase of online shopping, many shoppers still prefer physical stores, and more than half of those who were flattered by last year's sales were shopping both in stores and online.

 

 

11. The fashion industry is still more likely to be in the rearguard of Black Friday in terms of the number of buyers and, of course, the amount of the check. For example, consumers are projected to spend, on average, just over $ 250 each on clothing and footwear (by comparison, the average furniture bill is likely to be over $ 700).

 

12. True, while brands like H&M, Topshop and Mango offer discounts on almost the entire assortment, then for Farfetch and Net-a-Porter Black Friday becomes a reason to sell off the rest: special discounts apply only to the Sale department.

 

13. In recent years, Amazon, Argos, Boots, Currys, Debenhams, Halfords, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Littlewoods, Morrisons, Tesco and Very have been among the most active members with the best discounts.

 

14. Which states that 87% of Black Friday special pricing items can be purchased for the same price or even lower at other times of the year.

 

15.When shopping, please note the explanation for the special offer. Sometimes stores simply indicate the price "was-now", where the product was sold at the old price almost six months ago, but not yesterday.

 

On the one hand, Black Friday really looks like a thoughtless celebration of consumerism - and therefore aggravates environmental problems, for which the fashion industry is also responsible. On the other hand, it is possible to preserve sanity even during total stunning sales. Glossy magazines also call for this - with materials in the spirit of "What timeless things to buy at a discount" or "How to assemble a basic wardrobe for a sale." “Trends are cool,” admits Who What Wear, but warns that they won't work in a wardrobe unless you have a solid base to pair them. "And it doesn't have to be expensive."

 

There is nothing wrong with discounts in and of themselves, and even more, it is a great opportunity for many buyers to "jump" into a more expensive and high-quality clothing segment and choose durable items made from sustainable materials and in compliance with the principles of sustainable development. You can deliberately support brands that refuse discounts in favor of charitable initiatives. Finally, a big sale could be a good non-sale solution.
