Thanksgiving in Desi Style

Almost every culture in the world has celebrations of thanks for a plentiful harvest. The legend of the American Thanksgiving occasion is said to have been founded on a feast of thanksgiving in the beginning of the American colonies almost 400 years back. The story as it is told in grade schools is a legend, a mythologized adaptation that minimizes a portion of the more disheartening history of how Thanksgiving turned into an American public occasion. It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.

The Indigenous people groups carried deer to broil with the turkeys and other wild game offered by the settlers. The pilgrims figured out how to cook cranberries and various types of corn and squash dishes from them. In the following years, many of the original colonists celebrated the autumn harvest with a feast of thanks.

In the US, Thanksgiving Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of November. This year, it falls on Thursday, November 26. The Thanksgiving Day of Hale and Lincoln was a homegrown occasion, a day of family homecoming, a legendary and nostalgic thought of the cordiality, class and joy of the American family. The purpose of the festival was no longer a communal celebration, but rather a domestic event, carving out a sense of national identity and welcoming home family members. Friendly homegrown images customarily served at Thanksgiving celebrations include: Turkey, corn (or maize), pumpkins and cranberry sauce. These are symbols which represent the first Thanksgiving. These symbols are frequently seen on holiday decorations and greeting cards.

So, let’s begin this gala occasion with some desi inputs. Let’s find some desi looks for ourselves and let’s embrace this grandeur festival in our own way.

The Fashionista:

Drop the old fashion and let’s pick up some new ideas of dapping a saree. Let’s break the concept of saree being used as only an ethnic attire.

The style that she picked up is very unique, where she wears a saree as the normal way but the only thing is, here she puts the anchal around her neck making a knot in the front part. This style actually enhances her figure. Pair it up with a designer blouse and nude makeup and you will just look jaw dropping.

The Lady Bird:

Did you ever image that a saree can be in a way like this! That it can bring out a completely new style like that of a designer dress!! So here it is, a totally new experiment with saree. This is something which is really new. It might be little tough to make this drape but it’s not impossible. All you need to do is, take a chiffon saree, hold one end and put it in the right corner of your waist, pull it from back to front all the way covering your hip portion and then fold it and make the pallu portion in nice pleats. If you do this you may see that in the right corner the other half of the saree is apart, so here you need pin the saree ends in from within so that it gives you a smooth and straight front look dress like look. Wear it with a crop top like that in the picture and you are ready for the Thanksgiving party.

The Hot Mess:
