Turkey, Football, Macy's Parade
The first symbol, a turkey, is the traditional meal of choice on this fall day. Turkeys symbolize the meal that was had by the pilgrims on the first Thanksgiving. A turkey is a symbol of simplicity and tradition and for most people, the most exiting thing on the table. Some families hunt their turkeys and others have a secret special recipe. Turkey day sales are all about making the items seem like they belong in your mom's kitchen. People buy these things because they remind them of their family as a kid or of their family that they miss.
