The thanksgiving menu is however required to be made in advance for the occasion since it requires some preparations and arrangements to be made beforehand.


The thanksgiving dinner menu may consist of the traditional recipes which stand good to the original day of thanksgiving and the meal celebrated then. Modern dishes too may have a place on the thanksgiving menu depending upon the taste and the kind of guests invited.
