From the first “Thanksgiving” feast in 1621 between the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag Indians, Thanksgiving has grown today, into a holiday that is nationally recognized. Even though it wasn’t until 1863 during the Civil War, that President Lincoln had made Thanksgiving Day a national holiday.
The first feast didn’t feature pies or any other desserts that are today, found on every table on Thanksgiving. The colonists and Indians enjoyed a meal of fowl, deer, and other staples that the Wampanoag Indians ate. Our entrees today differ very much from the meal in 1621, but our traditions have stayed the same.
We come together with our families to enjoy life, what we are thankful for, and to celebrate unique traditions.
