День благодарения – семейный праздник, который отмечают лишь в США и Канаде, поэтому для многих иностранцев слова и выражения, связанные с традициями Дня благодарения могут оказаться незнакомыми.

Но даже если у тебя среди родственников нет американцев (а тем более, если есть!), эти фразы и слова все-равно могут тебе пригодиться. Например, для общения со своими друзьями-американцами или для просмотра фильмов и сериалов в оригинале. 😉
