Thanksgiving is celebrated annually in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. People in the United States assemble with family and friends around tables spilling over with food and drink to observe Thanksgiving.
The holiday is a moment to give thanks and spend time with relatives and friends. Holiday décor — with images of autumn leaves, cornucopias and turkeys decorating seasonal napkins, plates and centerpieces — brightens homes and dining tables. A sense of celebration and joy hangs in the air, as relatives who might not see each other often reunite for the day. They eat a plentiful meal, watch football and parades, and then eat even more. Thanksgiving is one of the nation’s most popular holidays. Schools, banks, government offices and most businesses close for the day as people travel from near and far to be with their families.
But in the midst of the holiday parties, have you ever wondered about the origin and history of Thanksgiving?
Short Thanksgiving history
Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States, and in this 2021 occurs on Thursday, November 25. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Native Americans shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, individual colonies and states celebrate days of this holiday. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.
