New data from Tesco reveals that at least 13 million UK adults will celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK on the 24th of November this year.
Traditionally a US holiday, we’ve been increasingly adopting the celebrations of our cousins across the pond. With the 4th of July and Halloween becoming more prevalent, Thanksgiving is proving no different.
