  • 2. Long ago, people called Pilgrims left their home in England and came across the ocean to America in a boat called the Mayflower. They built their own houses, planted seeds they had brought with them, and made friends with the Indians, who were already living in America.
  • 3. The Indians taught them how to plant corn and hunt and fish for animals that they could eat. In the fall, when the corn was ready, the Pilgrims picked it. It was their first harvest, and when they had finished, they had a party to celebrate and give thanks that they had enough food to last through the winter. The party was called the First Thanksgiving.
  • 4. This first feast was not repeated until more than ten years later. Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln.
  • 5. Nowadays, Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, of family reunions and holiday meals .
  • 6. In the USA, Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, in Canada, it’s celebrated the second Monday of October.
