There’s a widespread misconception that Thanksgiving is the biggest November holiday in the United States. Don’t worry if you’ve fallen victim to this fallacy; it happens to the best of us. Thanksgiving may sound like a pretty big deal with its parades, football, and feast of calorie-filled goodness, but it actually sits in the shadow of a much more notable holiday: Thanksgiving Eve.
