You have to remember, Sepala, that this is primarily an American Website and they note prominent American holidays. In this case it's for Thanksgiving day.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving

And by the way, it's (almost certainly) meant to be a turkey rather than a chicken.

as a matter of taste I prefer chicken to turkey but then I'm a Brit:)
Well, dotty999, we actually got turkeys from Europe. They were very popular after being imported from Aztec Mexico, and it is very likely that the Pilgrims had already eaten turkey dinners before they even came to America. Though they may have eaten wild turkey at the first Thanksgiving, they had lots of other stuff, too, mostly cod and mussels that were native. The turkey breeds we use now came from Europe. They have been bred with such large breasts that they can't get close enough together to mate. Artificial insemination is the most labor-intensive part of raising turkeys. Ask Butterball.

Another story goes that Elizabeth I was eating a goose when she heard that the Spanish Armada had been defeated. She was so happy, she ordered another roasted goose. The Pilgrims, not having geese, chose to copy her except with native birds.

So you see, being a Brit is not so far from turkey as you thought.:D

But just about everyone has some sort of harvest festival, even if they don't call it "Thanksgiving". They have Thanksgiving in Canada, too, but in October.

(The turkey above has the hat that is usually pictured on the Pilgrims in artistic renderings.)
