Why Do We Celebrate Thanksgiving? There are many celebrations and holidays that are celebrated around the year in the US. But there is nothing more American than the Thanksgiving holiday! We celebrate it each year but have you given a thought as to why we do? Let's get a clearer of the holiday together! Thanksgiving is a federal holiday that is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving holiday is being celebrated annually on and off since 1789. Thanksgiving day is celebrated for the harvest and blessings of the past year. Thanksgiving was first observed in 1621 on a harvest feast that was shared by the English Colonists of Plymouth and the Wampanoag people. In the United States, there are lots of traditions followed on Thanksgiving day. People gather together and share meals together. A typical meal comprises turkey, bread stuffing, potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pies. A thanksgiving day parade is also held every year in remembrance of the Thanksgiving celebrations. The last Thursday of every November is time to give thanks for all that we have. My husband and son just think all day football and turkey. I think about all day cooking, cleaning, and just when I'm ready to sleep; hours of dishes.
