"Happy Thanksgiving" in Italian is "Buon Giorno del Ringraziamento." The Italian celebration of Thanksgiving has different origins and meanings than the traditional American or Canadian holidays.
Celebrating Thanksgiving in Italy is much different than celebrating the holiday in the United States. The phrase in Italy for Thanksgiving, "La Festa del Ringraziamento", refers to several different celebrations throughout the year, most of which are celebrated to honor different patron saints. For Americans or Canadians in Italy who are interested in celebrating the holiday, it is not always easy to find the right ingredients for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and substitutes are often necessary.
