Happy Thanksgiving! Feliz Día de Acción de Gracias!

November 25, 2009 at 8:16 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments

Thursday, November 26th is Thanksgiving in the United States. Thanksgiving’s historical roots date back to the 1600s when the English Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts. Since then the holiday has evolved into a day for giving thanks, eating a traditional feast, and most importantly, spending the day with family.

Our American teachers are looking forward to eating turkey and pumpkin pie with their Spanish and American friends and families right here in Madrid. Some traditions can never be broken!

Below are some links to learn more about Thanksgiving, in English and Spanish.
