A lot of people want to know what Thanksgiving Day is and why it is
celebrated. So, Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in America on the fourth
Thursday of November. On this day people gather for a day of feasting with family,
friends and relatives. This holiday has a long history which started in 1620.
A Protestant religious group, known today as pilgrims arrived in the new world on
board of the ship called Mayflower and settled in Massachusetts. Their first
winter in America was full of hardship and drama. They arrived too late to farm
the land so they starved. Half of the colony died from disease. The following
spring the local tribe of Native Americans taught them how to grow corn,
hunt and fish. In the autumn of 1621 the pilgrims got a rich harvest of corn,
barley, beans, pumpkin and other vegetables. The first Thanksgiving was a
three-day feast. Prior to dining they all praised the Lord and thanked him for all
the food and wealth he gave them. This is how the festivity got started. Let's get
back to our days and discuss modern Thanksgiving Day traditions. Family feast
is an important tradition. The entire family comes together, sits at the table,
offers prayer to the Lord and celebrates. Though historians don't have an evidence
to prove the turkey was eaten during the first Thanksgiving dinner but the
Thanksgiving celebration will be incomplete without it. The traditional
Thanksgiving parades started with President Lincoln proclaiming it
unofficial day. The full dress parade is a way to display the country's military
strength and discipline and to lift the spirits of the spectators. Thanksgiving
is a time to decorate home with wreaths, fresh and dried flowers. People give the
interiors a whole new look and feel. Thanksgiving is a day when
people send loving messages and warm wishes to their relatives and friends.
