Happy Thanksgiving…

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. In 1789 George Washington proclaimed a Thanksgiving Day, but it wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.


So for all my American readers, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you’re spending it with family and loved ones, if not, try to enjoy the day anyway!
