It’s the last week before the famous Thanksgiving break. People return home to be with their families and share a gigantic meal and get their Christmas preparations started. But Thanksgiving isn’t all turkey and football; it’s meant to celebrate the end of the harvest season. The very first Thanksgiving was celebrated all the way back in 1621 in Massachusetts. This tradition was carried on by the Puritans and the Puritans to the New England colonies. Since 1863, it’s been a tradition celebrated annually in the U.S. Thanksgiving also marks the beginning of the holiday season. The day after thanksgiving, Black Friday, is the most popular shopping day of the year where most people get the best sales on their Christmas shopping list. What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving? And what will you be thankful for this year? Enjoy this festive holiday, spend as much time as you can with your family, and eat as much turkey (or tofurkey for all you vegetarians) and pumpkin pie as you can!
