There is no time of the year more nostalgic and close to our hearts than this; full of family gatherings, festive meals, gift giving and special memories. The holiday season kicks off with the celebration of Thanksgiving, a highly anticipated 4 day weekend for most. The holiday showcases football games and extravagant parades – but the event everyone is waiting for is the big meal. Thanksgiving dinner is absolutely the star of the holiday.
Although the traditional belief is that the historic meal between the Pilgrims and Indians was the first Thanksgiving Day, that is actually a bit of a legend. Although that meal took place and was a festival to give thanks for an abundant harvest; it was a one time event that was never to take place again. Sadly, the friendship between the native Indians and the newcomers was largely gone within their lifetimes.
It was actually 1863 before a day of thanks became a true American holiday, when Abraham Lincoln established it to take place in November. And to this day, the holiday is a cherished tradition for most of us.
