Thanksgiving Holiday And Its Celebrations
Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November, but many Americans take a day of vacation on the following Friday to make a four-day weekend, during which they may travel long distances to visit family and friends.
The holiday dates back to 1621, the year after the Puritans arrived in Massachusetts, determined to practice their religion without interference of the government. After a rough winter, in which about half of them died, they built a friendship with neighboring Indians, who taught them how to plant corn and other crops that could flourish in New England’s soil and climate.
The next fall's bountiful harvest inspired the Pilgrims to give thanks by holding a feast and celebration for their friends and community.
