Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States (the second Monday of October in Canada). It began as a day where people gave thanks for the blessing of the harvest. The first Thanksgiving is believed to have taken place in October, 1621, when Pilgrims celebrated a bountiful harvest with the Native Americans who had helped them make it through the previous winter. It was formally proclaimed for all US states in 1863 by Abraham Lincoln. And it has, of course, morphed into a four-day extravaganza of gorging on food, feasting on football and willingly and unwillingly mixing with family members and distant relations that you - Thankfully - only see once or twice a year.
