About Puerto Rican Thanksgiving
What is a traditional Puerto Rican Thanksgiving?
The Thanksgiving holiday was not a traditional Puerto Rican holiday on the island. However, as many Puerto Ricans started to move to the United States and US holidays began to influence the island, Thanksgiving became the unofficial start of the holiday season in Puerto Rico. Thanksgiving Day is the same date as the United States.
Celebrating Thanksgiving in Puerto Rico is about the same as celebrating it on the mainland. Businesses are closed and family gatherings to celebrate happen across the island.
What you might see different will be that the dishes you expect in the United States might have a touch of Latin flavor.
The holiday season is a time for family and friends. It's a time to get together, share memories, laugh, and enjoy the company of others. And what better way to do that than with some delicious coquito?
