Thanksgiving, which occurs on the fourth Thursday in November, is based on the colonial Pilgrims harvest meal in 1621. The holiday continues to be a day for Americans to gather for a day of feasting, football and family.
For many Americans, the Thanksgiving meal includes seasonal dishes such as roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. The holiday celebrates when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “First Thanksgiving.
Unlike some holidays such as New Year's Eve and Fourth of July when people traditionally go out somewhere to celebrate, Thanksgiving is most commonly celebrated at home with family and friends.
We wish all of our American customers, colleagues and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving 2018.

Snap decision one Thursday to drive to see Cartagena in Murcia which is south eastern Spain. As ever sat nav utterly accurate – 4 hours to do 405km. Great drive around Granada and up into the wooded hills on very quiet roads. Scenery changes and the Land and hills become very dry with little vegetation. Murcia is a very dry part of Spain.
