Today is el día del pavo, or el día de la acción de gracias. Puerto Rico celebrates Thanksgiving just like the U.S., but it's not as big of a deal as it is in the States.

I found this article, it seems a little exaggerated in the Puerto Rican-ness of it (dominoes and güiros are not an every day thing, and everyone eats turkey), but it does describe some other foods that might appear in the menu. So I thought I'd pass it along.

And to everyone else, ¡buen provecho! (have a nice meal).

It is a big deal as well (any day off, no work/ school is a big deal in the island, especially when it means a long weekend thrown to the mix). There's also the Black Friday, same as in the States. And, as the article says, we add arroz con gandules, pasteles, etc to the menu.
