No, Thanksgiving is celebrated mainly in the US and in Canada (though on different days) Thanksgiving is a day N.Americans celebrate to give thanks for the first settlers here making it through their first year. Other countries have their own local holidays :)

No. Because thanksgiving is the celebration of the pilgrims arriving in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Therefore, people in Turkey don't really have a reason to celebrate Thanksgiving but they have their own holidays we dont celebrate. haha...

Turkey is in the middle east. No where near America. Thanksgiving is strictly an American holiday (it celebrates the peace pilgrims had with Native Americans; you know, because after that it gets pretty bloody).

Don't feel stupid about your question. A lot of us don't know either, unless we look it up.

Don't feel stupid. I wondered the same thing. It is an american tradition but other countries have picked up on it on their own variations.
