The Netherlands have somewhat the same type of Thanksgiving traditions as the United States. Thanksgiving day is important to the Dutch. The pilgrims that landed in America all those years ago landed in Leiden in the Netherlands where they stayed for quite a while. Today in Leiden there is a thanksgiving celebration that is held at the Pieterskerk which is a Gothic church in the city where one of the leaders of the pilgrims John Robinson is buried. You get traditional Thanksgiving meals on the third Thursday of November. Even resturants like Hard Rock Cafe have regular meals from Thanksgiving.
