感恩節的由來

 西元 1620年,五月花號 (The Mayflower) 載著大約有大人和小孩共一百零二人的英國清教徒 (Pilgrims) 在現在麻薩諸塞州的普利斯敦登陸,而當年的寒冬讓他們受盡苦難,到春天來臨,只剩下50多人存活。春季來臨後,得到印地安人給予協助,幫他們整修家園,教他們種植作物,還有最重要的就是飼養火雞,因而有較好的豐收。

 為感謝上帝及印地安人朋友,這些清教徒決定舉行慶祝,這就是最早的感恩節由來。至於吃火雞的習俗,似乎也是因為印地安人同伴在初春來幫忙時,帶來了火雞,成為他們主要肉類來源的原因。

 以後,每年清教徒們都會舉行感恩歡慶,在黎明時鳴放禮炮,列隊走進教堂,點起舞火舉行盛宴。到了1789年華盛頓總統就職聲明中宣佈,11月26日星期四為感恩節,以鼓勵美國人發揚祖先感恩精神,成為美國正式節日。

 後來在 1863 年美國總統林肯,宣布每年十一月最後一個星期四為感恩節假期;之後感恩節的日期也經過幾次變動,至1941年經過國會通過,開始改回每年11月第四個星期四為感恩節。在美國和加拿大都會過感恩節 (Thanksgiving Day) ,但不是同一天。

 每個家庭都會為了感恩節,之前就開始忙碌採購了,除了要準備豐盛的大餐之外,也要準備一些感恩節的裝飾,像是小型的南瓜和彩色玉米,就是很應景的裝飾物。

 很多家庭在感恩節當天早上會先上教堂,接著回到家裡從中午或下午就開始享用豐盛的火雞大餐,除了家人團聚話家常之外,還有個重要活動就是-大家一起觀賞美式足球比賽。到了晚餐時分如果肚子餓,就把剩下來的火雞肉做成三明治,或是用火雞肉做成火雞肉派,或是把 Stuffing 和火雞肉做成烤菜,這也是把一隻大火雞吃光的其他方法。

 美國的梅西百貨,更是會每年舉行感恩節遊行活動,這個活動現在也成為不可或缺的一種地方性代表。

    Many families would go to church on Thanksgiving morning and then head back home for a lovely feast of turkey. Besides chatting to family members, it has become a traditon lately to watch a football game.

    If someone is still hungry during dinner time, sandwiches are made from leftover turkey as a way of not wasting the whole turkey. Turkey pies, turkey stuffings were also ways of disposing of the whole turkey.
