Today is a very special Holiday in the U.S and I wanted to honor it by teaching you how to give thanks in Spanish.

Thanksgiving in Spanish is Día de acción de gracias. Yeah, all of that…

First thing you need to know: You are going to be eating PAVO, not TURQUIA. It is an easy mistake because they both mean Turkey

Vamos a cocinar un pavo para la cena del día de acción de gracias.
We are going to cook a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner

Now, the main thing about this Holiday is to give thanks for all the good things in your life, right?
Probably you already know thow to say Thanks : Gracias which is useful today, and everyday for the rest of your life.

Gracias por… Thanks for…
