It is always on the the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.
Thanksgiving is an old holiday. It started in the year 1620. People went from England to America. They were "pilgrims". When they arrived in America, they had no food. Native Americans gave them food. The people were happy and to say "thank you", they made a special dinner. That's the origin.
Nowadays, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving doing different activities:

  • Thanksgiving Dinner - people enjoy eating with their families. They eat corn, potatoes, pumpkin pie and turkey.
  • Thanksgiving Football - people watch American football on TV. The players play with helmets and pads. The ball is like a rugby ball.
  • Thanksgiving Parade - people watch the "Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade" on TV. The parade is held in New York City and there are lots of big balloons of famous cartoon characters.
  • Pardoning a Turkey - a recent tradition is that the US President pardons a turkey. This means he lets it live.

On Tuesday 6th of November there was an important election in the USA. It was to choose new politicians for the country – and the next American President, too.
Each state in the USA gives their votes based on their population. And President Obama won the election by 332 votes to 206.
It was a long campaign, with both candidates (Obama and Romney) giving hundreds of speeches while they travelled around the country. A total of six billion dollars was spent on the election, a huge amount of money.
In his victory speech the President said: “We know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come.”
Now, as he also tweeted: “Four more years!”.

The election takes place on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.
In 2012, American will go to the polls on November 6.


The USA President can be a man or a woman of any race or any religion and he or she has to be born in the United States and be at least 35 years old.

 

He or she can only be President for eight years (that's two four-year terms). Roosevelt was the only person to be President for more than two terms. He was elected four times.


In 2012, there are several people running for President but the two major candidates are former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (he is the Republican Party Presidential Candidate) and President Barack Obama (he is the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate).

 

After the primaries, the political parties choose a candidate at their conventions.
When the election day arrives, each state has a certain number of electoral votes and the first candidate to win 270 electoral votes becomes the President.


On January 20, the President is sworn in, in Washington, D.C. He recites an oath: I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.


At last, the new President and his or her family moves into the White House, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.
