Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day started celebrating a long time ago in 1621. when the first settlers came searching for the New World. Since only half of them survived that first year, their native friends showed them how to survive with the crops, catching wild animals and fishing. They were thankful for the blessings of harvest and they started celebrating food that was on the table.

1.The first Thanksgiving wasn’t a feast, natives helped settlers by bringing them food.
2. It was in 1941. that the Thanksgiving day was declared as national holiday. It was declared to be on fourth Thursday in November.
