Thanksgiving Day is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past years.
The tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving dates back to the 1600s, when a small ship Called Mayflower left its dock in England carrying pilgrims who were looking for a new home where they could freely practice their faith.
They were taken to America (the New World) . In 1621 the colonists together with the Native Americans had an autumn harvest feast that they had laboured to produce the first ever Thanksgiving celebration in Plymouth (now Massachusetts)
