There’s nothing quite like the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. Historically, Western cultures have celebrated a period of thanksgiving in the autumn to mark the end of the growing season and a successful harvest. These humble festivals included large meals to feed the village or broader community as a means of observing God’s blessing of a bounty to survive the lean winter months. In the modern era, Thanksgiving is a smorgasbord of various foods that often leaves one reaching for stretchy pants.

Thanksgiving was first observed in the United States by the Pilgrims who settled the Plymouth Colony in what is now the state of Massachusetts. The Pilgrims arrived in 1620, but found it difficult to work the land in unfamiliar territory. Were it not for the local Wampanoag people, the Pilgrims would not have survived the winter of 1620-1621. However, with the know-how of the Wampanoag, the Pilgrims learned what to plant and when in order to enjoy a bountiful harvest in the New World. Come the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims were able to observe their traditional harvest festival and give thanks for a bountiful crop. This resulted in the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people sharing a meal together for the first time in the fall of 1621.
