The First Thanksgiving

            Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. We celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November. The holiday began as a celebration of the harvest. The Pilgrims celebrated the First Thanksgiving in October 1621 after their first harvest in the New World.

            Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks and show gratitude for blessings. It is a day to remember the arrival and survival of the Pilgrims in the New World. Since I enjoy many blessings, I will use the day to express my gratitude to God for watching over and blessing my family and friends.

            Michael Medved, shares the fascinating story of the first Thanksgiving in a video provided by Prager University. It can be found at this site.
