Thanksgiving traditions are an important part of family life for many Americans. While some gather with extended family for a big meal, others line up for Black Friday deals.
For some, it’s the parade on TV or catching a football game. Whatever the specifics, it is an important time for most American households. As much as the holiday has remained the same, there are quite a few things that have changed over the years. Take a look back at Thanksgiving in the 1950s here.
