Thanksgiving is a national holiday that is celebrated mainly in Canada and the United States to give thanks for the year's harvest.  Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.

Prayers and the giving of thanks are common.  Families gather for feasts featuring turkey.

Canadian Thanksgiving

The origin of Canadian Thanksgiving is connected to the traditions of Europe when festivals to celebrate the harvest were held in October.  When an explorer from England named Martin Frobisher arrived in 1578 in what is now called Newfoundland, he gave thanks for his safe arrival to the New World and celebrated what is thought to be the first Thanksgiving in Canada.  As other settlers arrived, the annual thanksgiving ceremony continued.

French settlers arrived with explorer Samuel de Champlain and also held huge feasts of thanks.  

Thanksgiving in the United States

Geographically, the United States is south of Canada resulting in a later harvest.  Thanksgiving in the States is linked to the arrival of pilgrims landing in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth is a town in Plymouth County, in the state of Massachusetts.  It is known as "America's Hometown" and is one of the oldest establishments in the United States since it was here, that a colony was founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims that arrived onboard the famous Mayflower ship.

According to writings at the time, the Pilgrims celebrated their first harvest in the fall of 1621 at Plymouth.  The Pilgrims had celebrated Thanksgiving before, but in a religious fashion.  However, the celebration in the fall of 1621 was something quite different.  

The Pilgrims would not have survived in their new home without the help of the Wampanoag people.  They had been living in this area for 11,600 years.  They had a great knowledge about the area, navigation and the growing of crops.  In short, they knew how to survive here.  All this knowledge, they shared with the colonists.

When the Pilgrims celebrated the new colony’s first harvest, it was done together with the native people and their leader, Massasoit.  About 90 men joined the Pilgrims for a feast which lasted three days!

The giving of thanks and feasting has become a tradition in America and the event in 1621 has come to be known as "The First Thanksgiving".
