Do school kids get it off as a holiday?
Yes. A lot of people travel during Thanksgiving, so the kids get a few days off from School.
Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year in the States. Many people look forward to the day after Thanksgiving(Black Friday) because a lot of shops have huge sales. The bad part is that most shops have a time limit on the sales, usually starting around 5 am and ending about 11 am. Black Friday is the biggest sales day of the year. Any other questions, Becky's Mom? I'll be glad to help
