Thanksgiving: Unternehmen in Amerika schließen zum FeiertagLesezeit: 1 Minute
This Thursday, many American business will be closed due to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving, the harvest festival celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November, is different than in Germany. Many Americans take the Friday off as well and often travel very long distances to spend the day with their families and friends. Many businesses will also be closed over the long holiday weekend. The Thanksgiving weekend marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Despite record-high gas prices (more than $3.00 per gallon) in 2007, the American Automobile Association (AAA) estimated that 38.7 million Americans would travel 50 miles or more from home for the Thanksgiving holiday, a slight increase (1.5 percent) over the previous year.
Of those Americans traveling for Thanksgiving in 2007, approximately 80 percent (31.2 million) were expected to go by motor vehicle, 12.1 percent (4.7 million) by airplane and the rest (2.8 million) by train, bus or other mode of transportation.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
