I have no memories, they are scraps of moments throughout my life. When I was a girl in my house there were no celebrations. Over the years, and being bigger we celebrated, but they always ended up in fights. Already older we celebrate, but without fights or discussions. Our celebrations have no religious connotation, they are rather an excuse to meet trying to leave behind and lighten, even for a few hours, the burdens that we all carry on us.
I'm not sure too many international people celebrate this holiday. Thanksgiving is an American holiday (I think Canada and other countries celebrate a version of it but on different days) based on the first settlers from Europe who had to endure hardship and through the help of locals were able to pull through their first winter.
Over here the tradition is to have turkey and tons of other filling foods to commemorate the event. Modern takes on it also involve showing appreciation for people who've gotten you through your own hardships.
I'd say though my best memory of the holiday was when in college some of us were stranded from getting home on one bad year where we had more snow than usual. So the locals set up this huge community celebration and invited us. We saw their local traditions, sampled the types of foods they prepared which was unique to their town compared to where we were from and then shared in a few activities. For example they sang a few local songs and then there was this one guy in our group who was really into heavy metal rock so he scream-o'd a few verses.
