The US Thanksgiving holiday traces its origins back to 1621 when the Pilgrims, early settlers of Plymouth Colony, held a three-day feast to celebrate a bountiful harvest. This event is often regarded as America's "first Thanksgiving," although the Pilgrims themselves may not have used that specific term. The tradition of celebrating a successful harvest became an annual custom throughout New England in the late 17th century. However, it wasn't until during the Civil War, in 1863, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens" to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November. Since then, Thanksgiving has been observed annually in the United States. The importance of Thanksgiving extends beyond its historical roots. Today, it serves as a day for American families and friends to come together, enjoy a feast, express gratitude, and kickoff the holiday season. It has also become synonymous with parades and football games. Despite its evolution over centuries, at its heart Thanksgiving remains a day dedicated to giving thanks for the preceding year’s blessings.
