The Story of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving, a holiday celebrated in the U.S. on the fourth Thursday in November, is an autumn harvest festival.
But what's the story behind the holiday?
The American celebration of the holiday has its roots in a 3 day feast celebrated in the fall of 1621 by the Pilgrims and and native Wampanoag of Plymouth Massachusetts in thanks for a bountiful harvest after a year of illness and scarcity.
Although there were Thanksgiving observances both before and after Washington's proclamation, it was not an official holiday.
So many names make us think of Thanksgiving.
Have a Great Thanksgiving!
