Thanksgiving is celebrated every year by millions of Americans and is one of the most important celebrations of American citizens. This day is a new opportunity to be thankful, because it is also a day that allows us to be close to our loved ones, family, and friends; however, don’t forget that it is important to be thankful every day and acknowledge how fortunate we are, because we all have something to give thanks for.  Nevertheless, you may not know the origin of this incredible holiday, and to celebrate it with more awareness and knowledge, here’s the story.

The story is quite brief. In 1621 the English arrived in Plymouth, currently Massachusetts. During the cold winter, they were helped by the Wampanoag Indians, who helped them survive the harsh climatic conditions. After the first corn was harvested, the English settlers and the Wampanoag Indians gathered to celebrate the autumn harvests, with a feast that included duck, goose, deer, cornbread, and vegetables.

However, in 1939, Franklin Roosevelt changed the date of the celebration to the fourth Thursday of November in an attempt to further promote economic activity by extending the Christmas shopping period.
