Thanksgiving Day: Salt Lake City, Utah, USA


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.
