Thanksgiving History
Every year, we celebrate Thanksgiving on the last Thursday in November. However, that's not how it's always been! Many of us also remember the pilgrims being the first to have a Thanksgiving Feast, but the first Thanksgiving Feast actually occurred nearly 80 years prior to the "original" Thanksgiving. We remember pertinent parts of many stories and holidays, but fail to remember a lot of details that get lost in time. Review what you know about Thanksgiving in the videos and article below. Astound your loved ones with your holiday knowledge and have a happy holiday!
