Thanksgiving Day - November 27, 2014

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day is a public holiday observed every year on the fourth Thursday in November.

This holiday has its roots in the early pilgrim days as a celebration to the end of a fruitful harvest season.

For many americans it means time with family, turkey and mashed potatoes, a weekend of football, and more recently, the shopping.

A big part of Thanksgiving Weekend is now the sales in what has now become the largest shopping weekend of the year, which includes "Black Friday" or the Friday after Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, the Monday after.

More recently, some malls and stores are beginning to open on Thanksgiving Day, now dubbed "Gray Thursday", but many still remain closed, so check before you head out, and needless to say, if you don't like crowds, avoid the stores on these days.

Here's a comprehensive list of opening hours accross South Florida for major store chains and shopping centers: Sun Sentinel Black Friday Guide 2014

As in all public holidays, government offices, schools, post offices, banks and public libraries will close on Thanksgiving Day. Many restaurants remain open and offer special dinners to celebrate the Holiday.
