Thanksgiving 2018

The Czech Center New York will be closed on November 22 until November 25 - THANKSGIVING.

 

CCNY will be closed during the Thanksgiving Weekend from Thursday, November 22nd until Sunday, November 25th. During that time, our gallery will be closed as well. We wish you a happy holiday and we are looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!

In America the fourth Thursday of November is always Thanksgiving, a holiday commemorating the first harvest feast shared between Pilgrims (America’s early settlers) and Native Americans. 

Today the holiday focuses on family life and the things for which we have reason to give thanks. The day preceding Thanksgiving is America’s largest travel day because many families gather to celebrate the holiday together. Families typically enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal, which usually includes turkey, cranberries, and pumpkin pie.
