For example Independence day calls for hot dogs and hamburgers, Christmas calls for gingerbread, ham, and gravy, and of course, Thanksgiving calls for turkey, cranberry sauce, and, of course, pumpkin pie. And while there are a ton of other dishes that are traditionally eaten on Thanksgiving besides the ones previously listed, those are definitely holiday staples.
