Thanksgiving: History, Highlights, All You Need To Know


Thanksgiving is a long-standing custom with deep historical, grateful, and cultural significance that is mostly observed in the United States and Canada. It’s an occasion to get together with loved ones, enjoy a hearty dinner, and give thanks for all of the year’s blessings. Here’s all you need to know about this beloved holiday.

Origin and History:

The origins of Thanksgiving traced back to different historical events. In the United States, the traditional story centres around the Pilgrims’ feast in 1621 with Native Americans, expressing gratitude for a successful harvest. The origins of Canada’s Thanksgiving, or “Action de Grâce,” can be traced to the harvest festivals and gratitude rituals of the European explorers.

The large feast is one of Thanksgiving’s main highlights. Pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and roast turkey are frequently served on the tables. This is an occasion to gather with dear ones, share stories, and create new bonds.

Communities come together with gigantic balloons, floats, and performances during the US Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and other regional parades in Canada. Professional and amateur football games are a crucial aspect of Thanksgiving celebrations in the United States.

Beyond its historical origins, Thanksgiving has evolved into a time to reflect on everything one is thankful for and give thanks for their family, friends, and opportunities throughout the year. Additionally, communities use this time to support those in need by holding food drives, recruiting volunteers, and accepting donations.

Though they take place on different dates and go by different names, similar harvest and gratitude-themed festivals are held in many nations throughout the world. People from many ethnic backgrounds have embraced Thanksgiving in recent years, incorporating their customs and foods into the celebrations.

Thanksgiving remains a cherished time to come together, appreciate life’s blessings, and partake in cherished traditions. It serves as a reminder of the value of sharing thankful and joyful moments and stands as a testament to the strength of community and thankfulness as it develops further.
