Celebrated annually on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, Thanksgiving Day is a holiday. This day precedes “Black Friday” and is celebrated to give thanks for the food collected at the end of the harvest season. This year November 28th is observed as Thanksgiving Day. On this day, families and friends get together for a meal; they may also engage in several sports activities. With celebrations, there are also possibilities of injuries, burns while cooking or injuries sustained during other activities.
