Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. Families and friends get together to make thanks to the good life and happily celebrate the holiday.
You may use your camcorder to record some videos about your Thanksgiving Day dinner or other activities, so that you can share these videos on TV with your family and friends. To share these videos, you can also upload them to video sharing sites, such as YouTube. Below are some tips for you before you upload your Thanksgiving Day videos to YouTube.
