The first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, to commemorate the harvest reaped by the Plymouth Colony after a harsh winter. In that year Governor William Bradford proclaimed a day of thanksgiving. The colonists celebrated it as a traditional English harvest feast, to which they invited the local Wampanoag Indians. By the mid–1800s, many states observed a Thanksgiving holiday.
For many of us the meaning of Thanksgiving usually includes feasting, four-day weekends, football games, floats, family gatherings, or the day before “Black Friday, the official start of the Christmas shopping season. While diverse in our reasons, Thanksgiving Day is observed by all as a day set aside to reflect and express gratitude and appreciation for those many blessings we experience in our daily lives throughout the year.
President John F. Kennedy once said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
