Thanksgiving in America

In the year of 1621, Wampanoag and the Plymouth colonists shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today.

 For more than two centuries, days of Thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. 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, Thanksgiving Day is the national holiday celebrated in America and also Canada. It’s a feast of Turkey, ham, stuffing, pumpkin pie, cornbread, and gravy–so delicious.

This year(2017) marks my fifth(5) year of celebrating Thanksgiving in America. I find it exciting and enjoyable. I noticed that it’s a time when friends and families come together to eat, play games, and just enjoy each other’s company. This year’s  Thanksgiving Day holiday, after spending couple hours with family friends I decided to take a hike in the wood.
