Thanksgiving, a holiday representing the act of giving thanks or the expression of gratitude, is celebrated annually in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. Since the first celebration in 1621, people typically celebrate the holiday by eating a large meal with family or friends modeling the feast shared between the Wampanoag people and English colonists. This year why not gather your nearest and dearest for a Thanksgiving out on the water in Berkeley with the incredible views of San Francisco Bay on a City Cruises yacht to kick off the holiday season?
