As the end of November approaches it’s that time of year, to get together and celebrate. Mascalzone Restaurant will be Open for Thanksgiving Day 2018, as not all Houstonians are able to prepare a Thanksgiving Day Feast or organise a large family get together.
That’s where Mascalzone come in! Their Houston Location will be open for the Holiday with the regular dine in service or service to go catering packages.
So if you’re looking to get yourself and the family out of the house (…and the kitchen) then why not head down to Mascalzone on Westheimer and celebrate with us in authentic Italian style!
About Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in the USA. Canada, some Caribbean Islands and Liberia also celebrate Thanksgiving but on different dates.
The idea of a holiday to celebrate Thanksgiving originates as a thank you offering for the blessing of the harvest of the preceding year. Traditionally the Thanksgiving Holiday holds religious roots, but has, over time, become a cultural tradition that is celebrated as a secular holiday.
Typically Thanksgiving Day in the United States falls on the fourth Thursday of November. So this year it will fall on Thursday 22nd.
The history of Thanksgiving Day dates back to English traditions from the Protestant Reformation Period. These were carried over to the New World by Pilgrims and Puritans that emigrated to the United States from England during the 16th and 17th centuries. It features elements associated with traditional Harvest festival time.
From the time of the Founding Fathers to Abraham Lincoln Thanksgiving Day was celebrated on varying days from state to state. It was Lincoln who proclaimed that the holiday was to be celebrated on the same day for all states as a national holiday.
