What Thanksgiving is All About

Thanksgiving is a holiday to be enjoyed with good food amongst family and friends. It is a time to prepare the turkey and enjoy the company of your family and loved ones. The question is though, what do we really know about the history of Thanksgiving?

History of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a traditional American holiday, which falls on the fourth Thursday of November every year. Thanksgiving has been an annual holiday since approximately 1863, although this date is not completely certain. It is a holiday which is surrounded by tales and legends. The story of Thanksgiving was said to have begun with the Pilgrims giving thanks to a good harvest and good blessings for the preceding year. In history, it is said that the first Thanksgiving lasted three days. However, this factor remains to be seen as there are many other clues to other “First Thanksgivings”. For example, a marker in Texas says “Feast of the First Thanksgiving – 1541”. Another Thanksgiving day was also declared in 1631 when a ship carrying supplies that were believed to have been lost at sea pulled into Boston Harbor. The governor proclaimed this day a day of Thanksgiving. In 1789, George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving Proclamation. Although it was not agreed by other presidents to agree to such a resolution, many states continued celebrating Thanksgiving on different days, but it was always celebrated in November.
