As the celebration of Thanksgiving comes every year, it is considered one of the most important dates in the United States and is celebrated with a family reunion. This year, Thursday, November 25 falls, and since it is considered a national holiday, many businesses and government offices will remain closed, but many others will remain open as well.

Some stores or businesses are simply going to change their hours a bit, not just Thanksgiving but the entire week. Banks, supermarkets, schools and different businesses change their hours that week.

Most restaurants will remain open, but there are exceptions. Indeed, if the family wants to dine outside the house, they must make reservations in advance, since most of them will be quite busy.

Most fast food chains will remain open: Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, Dunkin, Pollo Loco, McDonald’s, Popeyes, Subway, Pizza Hut,
