Tylers Celebration Project

  1. 1. Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, of family gatherings, friend gatherings, and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, pumpkin pie, corn, holiday parades, giant balloons, and let’s not forget the American football games. You can also thank God for all the food on your plate. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November in the US. Thanksgiving is a harvest festival and a native holiday. The first Thanksgiving occurred on the sight of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621. The first Thanksgiving was started when the pilgrims came to the new land and met the Indians or the Native Americans and shared their harvest. Both Indians and Pilgrims hunted and gathered food to create the feast. The first Thanksgiving lasted three days providing enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Indians. On the first Thanksgiving feast people did not eat what I eat today. Instead turkey, they ate duck, geese, venison, fish, lobster, clams, squash, berries, and many more vegetables because they were not able to find the foods we eat on the holiday today either because they were not able to find it in the area or they couldn’t grow or kill the food. I like Thanksgiving because I get to stuff my face with food and see family and friends.
