Thanksgiving, historically, is a holiday to celebrate the surplus in harvest and to give thanks in general. While the first documented Thanksgiving occurred in Saint Augustine, Florida in 1565, the first traditional Thanksgiving occurred in Plymouth Plantation in 1621.
Each year, the settlers would have a large feast on Thanksgiving. They would invite the Native Americans who helped them settle. Today, we host a large family feast and tend to eat the same foods they ate: turkey, yams, cranberry sauce, squash, and pumpkin pie. Family members travel far to be with each other on this day.
