Thanksgiving Day in the USA is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. Originally a religious festival during which people gave thanks to God, Thanksgiving is now a secular event and family occasion.
Every year, thousands of people travel home from every corner of the world to spend thanksgiving with their families. Compare airfares and find cheap flights to New York and USA with eDreams.
