Why do Americans celebrate Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude!
Thanksgiving is celebrated every year in the United States in November to mark the harvest and other blessings of the past year. It can be traced back to 1621 when a harvest feast was shared by the English colonists ( later known as the Pilgrims) of Plymouth and the Wampanoag people.
The later feast was hosted to honor the help of the Pilgrims from the Native Americans in developing crops and surviving their first severe winter. The original celebrations lasted for three days instead of one.
One thing you can be sure of is we are all thankful for you every day of the year, your comments, your story, and your loyalty. You make this blog and us better people and we couldn’t do it without your support.
