Pour Thanksgiving voici un extrait de la nouvelle de Louisa May Alcott (auteur des Quatre filles de Docteur March), An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving :
The big kitchen was a jolly place just now, for in the great fireplace roared a cheerful fire; on the walls hung garlands of dried apples, onions, and corn; up a loft from the beams shone crook-necked squashes, juicy hams, and dried venison . . . Savory smells were in the air; on the crane hung steaming kettles; and down among the red embers copper saucepans simmered, all suggestive of some approaching feast.
Thanksgiving, Norman Rockwell
Et un extrait du poème Over the river and through the wood de Lydia Maria Child :
Over the river, and through the wood,
to Grandfather's house away!
We would not stop for doll or top,
for 'tis Thanksgiving Day.
