Thanksgiving Day is celebrated mainly in the United States and Canada. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the 2nd Monday of October in Canada and on the 4th Thursday of November in the United States. Because of the longstanding traditions of the holiday, the celebration often extends to the weekend that falls closest to the day it is celebrated.  So what should be on the Thanksgiving menu?

For the mains try traditional turkey, but if you want something different this year why not try ham, chicken or pork roast:

For starters or appetizers try something small and light, like devilled eggs, mini tarts, various homemade fish pates, stuffed vegetables:

And finish your Thanksgiving lunch or dinner  with traditional sweet noms anything with apples, pumpkin, pecans, pears, just think autumn/winter :) :

 

Of course there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian alternative ideas, here are just a few:
