Why do we celebrate thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is primarily celebrated in the United States and Canada, though in different contexts and at different times of the year. The core idea behind Thanksgiving is to express gratitude for the harvest and blessings received over the past year.

In the United States

Thanksgiving traces its roots back to a 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. It’s often associated with the Pilgrims, early European settlers, and Native Americans sharing a feast to give thanks for a successful harvest and the help provided by the indigenous people.

Over time, Thanksgiving evolved into a national holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. It’s a time for families and friends to come together, share a meal (often centered around turkey and traditional dishes), and express gratitude for the good things in their lives.

In Canada

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October. It also revolves around giving thanks for the harvest season and blessings received throughout the year.

While the historical origins are tied to specific events, the modern celebration of Thanksgiving has grown to encompass broader themes of gratitude, togetherness, and appreciation for the blessings in our lives.
