A little history on Thanksgiving: it was first celebrated on December 13, 1620, back in what was called Massachusetts, the New World. After setting sail from England, 102 passengers survived the sea’s harsh conditions for 2 months and finally landed in our lands. They started building shelters for the winter, but half died of starvation and illnesses by spring. The Indians began assisting them and because of their help, the Pilgrims were able to reap a bountiful harvest on Summer. The grateful Pilgrims declared a three-day feast to thank God and their Indian friends. Learn more about Thanksgiving’s history.
