    None in the UK, it's a US thing.

    In UK we call it the Harvest Festival'

    In China maybe 'Moon Cake' festival?

    I think most countries/cultures have a celebration at this time to celebrate a good harvest.

    In the US, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Most people like to make it a four-day weekend and take Friday off as a holiday, as well. However, people who work in retail usually have to work, as the Friday after Thanksgiving officially kicks off the Christmas shopping season.
