Thankgiving - a day for gratitude
Thanksgiving did not become a national holiday until President Abraham Lincoln declared the last Thursday of November Thanksgiving Day in 1863. However, the Pilgrims and the Indians had the first Thanksgiving celebration in 1621 giving thanks to the indians and God for such a bountiful harvest. Today we celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, eating a Thanksgiving feast and celebrating all the good in our lives, all the hope for the future and all our successes, watching the Macey's Thanksgiving Day parade and football on TV. Overall, Thanksgiving is a day we give thanks!
