Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November every year in the United States. In 2023, Thanksgiving will fall on November 23rd.

In 1621, the colonists from Plymouth and the Wampanoag Indians gathered together to celebrate an autumn harvest feast that is now widely recognized as one of the earliest Thanksgiving celebrations in the American colonies.

For over two centuries, Thanksgiving was celebrated by individual colonies and states. However, it was not until 1863, during the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln declared a national Thanksgiving Day to be held annually in November.
