REVISED FOR THANKSGIVING 2022
Thanksgiving in the United States
Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday 26 November in 2020.
Thanksgiving is the second most important holiday in the United States. In fact, many Americans think of it as the beginning of the holiday season.
With the large number of U.S. nationals living in Hong Kong, many Americans there celebrate Thanksgiving much the way it is celebrated in the U.S., with lavish turkey dinners at home.
Why not leave the cooking to someone else and celebrate Thanksgiving at one of the many American eateries dotting Hong Kong?
But make sure to call ahead to make sure these restaurants are still open. And to ensure that you can book a table.
I’ve divided the list into four categories for Thanksgiving. Those several traditional turkey dinners and American-style gourmet burger joints, steak houses, and seafood restaurants.
Fourth of July in the United States
Most Americans celebrate July Fourth with barbecues, picnics, or trips to the beach.
Popular dishes include barbequed spareribs, fried chicken, and hotdogs. However, menus are not a fixed as on Thanksgiving.
