Think it's too early to prepare for Thanksgiving? Think again

Simplify your Thanksgiving planning by starting early and using The Daily Meal's Guide to Thanksgiving.

The same thing happens every year: you find yourself at the end of July starting to think about back-to-school supplies, then all of a sudden it’s Labor Day, then Columbus Day, then Halloween, and before you know it, Thanksgiving and the holiday season have crept up on you out of nowhere.

But apparently, Americans have started thinking about Thanksgiving earlier than ever, according to a Google search trends report. And why shouldn’t they? With the hoards of aunts, uncles, and grandparents that descend upon households during that week in November, planning ahead easily makes what could potentially be a very stressful few days worry-free.

In 2019, Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28, leaving you plenty of time to prepare for your best Thanksgiving yet. Start thinking about sweet potatoes, stuffing, and — of course — turkey, as you count down the days toward entering one of the biggest food comas of the year. If you want to go ahead and mark off your calendar for the coming year, plan to celebrate Thanksgiving on:

Here at The Daily Meal, planning ahead is on the brain with our Guide to Thanksgiving, which outlines all the recipes, advice, and entertaining tips you could possibly need to prepare yourself far in advance. While thinking about fall holidays in this sweltering July heat may seem strange, you’ll thank yourself later once you’ve hosted a stress-free Thanksgiving gathering. It’s never too early to plan ahead.

Here Is The Most Googled Thanksgiving Recipe In Every U.S. State

Thanksgiving is next week and you know that that means: copious amounts of savory turkey, creamy mashed potatoes and fluffy bread rolls. We've rounded up what most people in your state are looking up recipes for this holiday season.

That's according to a new report from, which analyzed the top-searched recipes on Google Trends from November 2017. Turkey and turkey-related recipes were searched for in 13 states, tied for most with green bean and corn casseroles. Thanksgiving dessert recipes, such as pumpkin pie, pecan pie and Jell-O, were searched for the most in 12 states.

But perhaps more interesting, a map of the Google searches showed some distinct geographical trends. The Midwest, for example, was dominated by casserole searches. The Southeast, meanwhile, saw some more variety in their Thanksgiving recipe searches. Three states — Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama — searched for sweet potatoes most, while the Carolinas were looking for mac and cheese recipes.

The annual holiday has clearly come a long way since the nation's first Thanksgiving feast in 1621, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony held a three-day festival and ate seafood with the Wampanoag Indians to celebrate a bountiful harvest. Thanksgiving is now celebrated each year on the fourth Thursday of November, and the average meal for 10 people costs about $49.

About 54 million Americans travel at least 50 miles from home over the holiday, and about 46 million turkeys will be eaten — more than twice that of Christmas and Easter.

Thanksgiving Recipes from 1796

Looking for a culinary challenge this Thanksgiving? Consider preparing your Thanksgiving dinner like it was 1796. The following recipes are from American Cookery by Amelia Simmons, the first cookbook written by an American, for an American audience, and published in the United States. Before its publication in 1796, only British cookbooks or American reprints of British cookbooks were available. The unique grammar and spelling are from the original publication.

To Stuff a Turkey

Grate a wheat loaf, one quarter of a pound of butter, one quarter of a pound salt pork, finely chopped, 2 eggs, a little sweet marjoram, summer savory, parsley and sage, pepper and salt (if the pork be not sufficient), fill the bird and sew up. Some add a gill of wine.
The same will answer for wild fowl.
Water fowls require onions.
The same ingredients stuff a leg of veal, fresh pork or a loin of veal.
Hang down to a steady solid fire, basting frequently with salt and water, and roast until steam emits from the breast. Put one third of a pound of butter into the gravy, dust flour over the bird and baste with gravy. Serve up with boiled onions and cranberry-sauce, pickles or celery.


Mrs. Simmons expected her readers grew and preserved vegetables the previous summer. If you had followed her recommendations for gardening and preserving peas, these would be excellent Thanksgiving recipes for side dishes.

To boil Cabbage.

If your cabbage is large, cut it into quarters if small, cut it in halves let your water boil, then put in a little salt, and next your cabbage with a little more salt upon it make your water boil as soon as possible, and when the stalk is tender, take up your cabbage into a cullender, or sieve, that the water may drain off, and send it to table as hot as you can. Savoys are dressed in the same manner.

To keep Green Peas till Christmas.

Take young peas, shell them, put them in a cullender to drain, then by a cloth four or five times double on a table, then spread them on, dry them very well, and have your bottles ready, fill them, cover them with mutton suet fat when it is a little soft fill the necks almost to the top, cork them, tie a bladder and a leather over them and set them in a dry cool place.


Mrs. Simmons provided numerous recipes for delicious desserts. However, to prepare these historical recipes for Thanksgiving, you’ll need to build a fire in the hearth instead of using your oven. Prior to the invention of the cast iron wood or coal heated stoves in the early 1800s, food was prepared on an open hearth. “Baked” desserts were boiled, steamed or baked in pots over the fire or hot coals.

A Nice Indian Pudding

3 pints of scalded milk, 7 spoons fine Indian meal, stir well together while hot, let stand till cooled. Add 7 eggs, half pound of raisins, 4 ounces butter, spice and sugar. Put into a strong cloth, brass or metal vessel, stone or earthen pot, secure from wet and boil 12 hours.

Pompkin Pudding

No. 1. One quart stewed and strained, 3 pints cream, 9 beaten eggs, sugar, mace, nutmeg and ginger, laid into paste No. 7 or 3, and with a dough spur, cross and chequer it, and baked in dishes three quarters of an hour.

No. 2. One quart of milk, 1 pint pompkin, 4 eggs, molasses, allspice and ginger in a crust, bake 1 hour.

A Plain Cake

Two quarts of milk, 3 pound of sugar, 3 pound of shortening, warmed hot. Add a quart of sweet cider, let this curdle, add 18 eggs, allspice and orange to your taste, or fennel, caraway or coriander. Put in 9 pounds of flour and 3 pints of emptins (liquid yeast). Bake well.

Syllabub – To make a fine syllabub from the cow

Sweet a quart of cider with sugar, grate nutmeg into it, then milk your cow into your liquor. When you have thus added what quantity of milk you think proper, pour half a pint or more, in proportion to the quantity of syllabub you make, of the sweetest cream you can get all over it. Whip it with a whisk, take off the froth as it rises and put it into your syllabub glasses or pots, and they are fit for use.

Serving this creamy, delicious dip in a bread bowl is not mandatory, but we highly recommended going for it.

Vigorously squeezing the cucumbers to remove as much water as possible helps to concentrate their flavor and creates a thicker dip.

“I need to transport my turkey, uncooked, from NYC to Boston, and this broken-down method will help me pack it in a cooler. It will also save space in the fridge when I get there. And I know it works—and is delicious. Plus, because the turkey is already cut into parts, I can roast the legs to 175-180 to get them a bit more falling-apart tender without sacrificing the breast—no bouncy dark meat for me thanks!” —Chris Morocco, deputy food editor

“I make this every year, because why wouldn’t you want to be the one to bring the rum punch?” —Emma Fishman, associate visuals editor

When is Canadian Thanksgiving?

If you had a hunch that Canadian Thanksgiving might take place on a different date than American Thanksgiving, you're right. In fact, it doesn't even take place during the same month as our holiday.

As always, Thanksgiving in the U.S. is set to take place on the fourth Thursday in November this year (that's November 26, 2020 to you). But in Canada, it'll take place on Monday, October 12&mdasha full month-and-a-bit before we get to sit down at our own tables. That's because Canadians traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October.

Thanksgiving Day Celebration in United Kingdom

'Harvest Festival' as is popularly known, is one of the oldest festivals in United Kingdom. It began in churches in the year 1843, when Robert Hawker invited local parishioners to a special thanksgiving service at a church in Cornwall. This resulted in the custom of decorating churches with home-grown products. In the old times, the success of crops determined the success or failure of the people. The natives of UK, pleased the God of fertility by offering him the first sheaf of corn. This was done to ensure a good harvest in the coming season. The ritual of offering an animal sacrifice, generally a hare, is accompanied with the cutting of last sheaf of corn. It is said that the last sheaf of corn contains its spirit. "corn dolls" are made to symbolize Goddess of grain. The entire community is invited for a celebratory dinner as part of the festivity. It is held every year in the month of September, on a Sunday nearing the harvest moon. This festival is however not declared a national holiday.

The celebrations continue till date in the rural communities. Children sing hymns, and gift fruits and vegetables. Distribution of fruits and vegetables also takes place in local communities.
