Norfolk Island is one of the few places outside of America to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. This is a legacy left by the American whalers who worked on Norfolk Island during the whaling industry in the 1960's. The day is celebrated at all of the churches to give thanks the churches are decorated with produce and island cooking. After the service the goods are auctioned off.
