Life is like a burning candle,sometimes it encounters wind and rain,and sometimes is accompanied by clear oxygen’s care.For all those who give help in our way,we should be with a grateful heart.
Today is Thanksgiving Day.How much do you know about Thanksgiving Day?
NAIS students created a creative video to spread Thanksgiving culture and customs through interactive graphics.
The interaction between pictures and pictures and the mode of video recording are impressive.Students present their in-depth understanding of western culture in the form of creative videos to convey their voices to the outside world in a more three-dimensional and experiential way.
Multiple people cooperate with each other and work as a team to make the presentation of the whole video more complete and comprehensive,and integrate everyone's viewpoints and cognition perfectly.The story is layered and fascinating.
All that Thanksgiving stuff...
The origin of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving Day,the western traditional holiday,is a holiday created by the American people,is also the American family holiday.In 1941,the U.S.congress officially designated the fourth Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day.The Thanksgiving holiday usually lasts from Thursday to Sunday.
In 1620,the famous ship'mayflower'arrived in America with 102 puritans who could not bear religious persecution in England.The Indians brought them the necessities of life and taught them how to hunt and fish and grow corn and pumpkins.So,in order to thank the Indians for their sincere help,the settlers invited them to celebrate the festival on the day of harvest.
The festival food
Thanksgiving dinner is one of the most important meals of the year for Americans.Turkey and pumpkin pie are served on the table,along with other delicious dishes.They are also served with savory snacks such as sweet potatoes,maize,pumpkin pie,cranberry jam,homemade breads and a variety of vegetables and fruits.
In addition to delicious meals,holiday activities are essential.After dinner,people often play some traditional games.One game is the cranberry contest,in which a large bowl of cranberries is placed on the ground and 4-10 competitors sit around,each given a needle and thread.
The most popular game is the pumpkin race,in which the runner pushes the pumpkin with a small spoon.The competition scene is often in full swing,loved by the children.
