The history of Thanksgiving is a story that we all have been taught since we first started to school.We have been in school plays , written stories and made posters all about Thanksgiving. History tells us how the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in Nov. 1621. The pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians came together in peace to have the first Thanksgiving. The first Thanksgiving was called an Autumn Harvest Feast. Another history fact is that Abraham Lincoln declared in the 1860’s that the last Thursday in November be a national holiday.
Thanksgiving is a day that families get together and have wonderful meals and thank God for all of their blessings. People should take the spirit of thanksgiving and practice it throughout the entire year. I hope that you and your family have a happy holiday season, from my family to yours.
