- Sweet corn

The National Football League (NFL) on Thanksgiving Day is a traditional series of games played during the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA. Currently, three NFL games are played every Thanksgiving.



The morning of Thanksgiving Day all eyes turn to Manhattan and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, an annual pageant of giant balloons, floats, cheerleaders, clowns, marching bands, Broadway shows and celebs. The parade begins at 9am and finishes three hours later at noon.





Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the USA, often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In recent years, most major retailers have opened very early and offered promotional  sales to kick off the holiday shopping season.

ICT activity - October



The Volvo Ocean Race is a yacht race around the world, held every three years. Originally named after its initiating sponsor, British Whitebread brewing company, it today carries the name of its current sponsor, Swedish automobile manufacturer Volvo. Presently, the Netherlands holds the record of three wins.

Though the route is changed to accommodate various ports of call, the race typically departs Europe in October, and in recent editions has had either 9 or 10 legs, with in-port races at many of the stopover cities.

Each of the entries has a sailing team of 9 professional crew who race day and night for more than 20 days at a time on some of the legs. They each have different jobs on board the boat, and on top of these sailing roles, there are two sailors that have had medical training, as well as a sailmaker, an engineer and a dedicated media crew member.

No fresh food is taken on board, so the crew lives off freeze-dried fare; they will experience temperature variations from -5 to +40 degrees Celsius and will only take one change of clothes.
