What is actually Thanksgiving? In 1620, one hundred people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to Massachusetts. However, their crops failed in the new climate and unfamiliar soil. Half of them died due to lack of fresh food. 

 

The few who survived were saved as Native Americans of the Iroquois tribe, they taught them how to grow crops.

 

In the fall season, in 1621, a lot of crops of corn, barley, beans and pumpkins were harvested. The settlers had much to be thankful for, so they invited the Iroquois chief and his tribe for this feast. The Indians brought turkeys, and the feast consisted of cranberries, corn turkey and deer, along with dishes taught by the Indians.

Without the Native Americans, the early settlers would not have survived and the United States, as it is today would not have existed!

 

The Thanksgiving date has been changed several times, but since 1939, thanksgiving has been celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, and it last in four days, from Thursday to Sunday.

 

Today, thanksgiving is a festival of family reunion. Family members gather for a reunion to give thanks for the good things that they have. They eat cranberries, roast turkey and corn, the same food that was eaten at the first thanksgiving in 1621!
