Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is a worldwide celebration that is especially popular in the United States. It started out as a way to commemorate the colonial Pilgrims’ harvest meal that was shared with the Wampanoag Indians back in 1621, just a year after the Plymouth landing. Nowadays, Thanksgiving takes place on the fourth Thursday of November and has long been observed as a secular holiday, despite having historical roots as well as religious and cultural traditions.

The pilgrim’s landing was received with one of the toughest winters ever recorded, so harsh that it was thanks to the Abenaki tribe that they could manage to cultivate corn and hunt in these newly found lands. A year after, to celebrate the successful harvest, the first Thanksgiving meal was shared by over 90 natives and around 50 pilgrims over the course of three days.
