Thanksgiving is one of the biggest holidays in the world, with the majority of countries celebrating it with large crowds and parties.
But what about a small island nation in the middle of the Pacific Ocean?
Thailand has a new holiday tradition.
Thais celebrate Thanksgiving with the famous pies.
The country has its own version of Thanksgiving, the “Pies for Thanksgiving,” and it’s popular with many in the country.
Thais celebrate the holiday with pies, a tradition that started during the British rule of the country, when the country was part of the British Empire.
The pie was made in a wooden mold with red dye and white sugar.
When it was baked, the lid was covered with red-colored paper, with red dots representing the names of the holiday and the date of the birth of the child.
The lid was then placed on top of the dough and the whole process was repeated until the pie was complete.
The tradition of the pie is said to be as old as the country itself, as the Thai people used to decorate their own home with the pies in the 1930s.
“It’s a tradition in Thailand that’s very special,” said Thais-American author and writer, Karen Wong, of her trip to Thailand.
“Thailand is one part of Asia and is so far away, so there are only a handful of people who have gone to the islands, and they’ve only been able to visit in the past.
They have a very deep, deep love for Thanksgiving, and it has always been a special time for them.”
The Thai holiday tradition began in the 19th century.
In the early 1800s, a Dutchman named Heng Kengsul, who was visiting Thailand, decided to bring a pie with him.
In 1907, he traveled to Hong Kong to give it to the British royal family.
In 1931, the Royal family visited Thailand and made the pie for the first time, with a large pie in the shape of a turkey.
Thailand’s version of the turkey pie has become a classic among Thai families and is considered the national dish.
“When I was growing up, I didn’t think there was any way I could make a turkey pie,” Wong said.
“When I met this guy, he was like, ‘We’re going to make a pie, and you’re going a different way, and we’re going with a little twist on it, so you’re doing this, and that, and this and that,’ and I was like ‘OK.'”
She added that when she first visited Thailand, she had a dream about her father making a turkey and her mother eating it.
“I had a moment of realization that this is a real thing,” Wong recalled.
“So, I was very excited about it.”
Thais and Americans, as well as many other people from Asia, have also enjoyed eating the pies.
Thaksin Shinawatra, a former Thai prime minister and current prime minister, was known to eat pies on his Thanksgiving table.
“I have a special place in my heart for Thanksgiving.
It’s the first Thanksgiving in my life,” Shinawata said in 2010.
“It’s very important.
It means so much to me.
It makes me feel very happy and proud to be a Thai.”
Wong said she is still looking forward to visiting Thailand and is excited to see the island’s new tradition.
“We’ve seen the rise of a new tradition, and I think that’s really exciting, especially for a small nation in Asia, which is so remote,” Wong explained.
“Thailand has been so isolated for so long, but the fact that it is able to come up with a new and wonderful tradition, I think is really good news.”–CNN’s Jessica A. Pritchard contributed to this report.
