Cigars to enjoy after Thanksgiving dinner

November 19, 2022

Thanksgiving is a special day to celebrate the harvest and blessings from the past year. However, while the celebrations begin with a bounty of home-cooked food and counting our blessing, they end with a premium cigar for us at JR.

Take a look at ways you can celebrate the day and find some of our favorite cigars to smoke after Thanksgiving dinner to end the day on a smoky high.

What is Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is an American holiday celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of November since 1941. However, Thanksgiving began in 1621 when a group of Europeans, known as Pilgrims, invited the local Native American tribes to join them in a feast after they had taught the Pilgrims how to grow crops successfully. Days of thanks were celebrated on different days by various colonies and states but then became a national celebration on the same day every year.

How to celebrate thanksgiving

Enjoying traditional foods is a large part of Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families prepare the food together before sitting to enjoy their feast. Traditional foods to eat on Thanksgiving include turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cornbread, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce.

Some families follow the tradition of breaking the turkey’s wishbone as part of their celebrations. Once it has a chance to become dry and brittle, two people take one end of the bone, make a wish, and pull. Whoever ends up with the larger part of the bone gets their wish.

Something which happens in New York City is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which many look forward to seeing every year. The parade is televised and includes marching bands, giant balloons, floats of your favorite characters, music, live celebrity performances, and Broadway musicals.

Above all, Thanksgiving is a time to gather loved ones and enjoy each other’s company as you give thanks for all the good things you’ve experienced in the past year. There are plenty of unique ways to celebrate, not least of all a toke on a new cigar.
