We stayed at Salt Lake City, Utah for three nights during the week of Thanksgiving day, last year. It was our first time to experience and celebrate Thanksgiving Day with a friend and his family for home dinner, outside the downtown of Salt Lake City. Thanksgiving day is celebrated in a similar custom like other festive seasons such as, Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Diwali etc. where the family members get together to chit chat and have a warm and home cooked dinner on the eve and the day of celebration. Roasted Turkey is the main dish to be served on Thanksgiving day followed up by other dishes like mashed potatoes, bread rolls, vegetable and dessert like apple pie, pumpkin pie or cake.
Apart from that, I also noticed that there are many beautiful and old churches around Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake City is a home to the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Less than half the population of Salt Lake City proper is Mormon today.
