Thanksgiving Day.noun
A day set aside for two things; a giving of thanks to God for blessings received throughout the year and for being thankful for enough received that we can freely share with others, such as, the sharing of an abundant harverst, beyond our own needs. 

In the United States of America, this holiday is observed on the fourth Thursday of November to commemorate the end of the harvest, thanking God for it and for good health. In the U.S.A. the day includes commemoration of the feast held at Plymouth in 1621 A.D. by the Pilgrim.colonists and members of the Wampanoag people. Pilgrims were those who left England to get away from the Church of England.

In Canada Thanksgiving Day is held on the second Monday of October by the giving of thanks to God for harvest and health. In both countries it's a public holiday where families gather together and have a large finely prepared meal celebrating their thankfulness for abundance of food, health, families, gratitude for safe journeys, etc. When all are at the table before beginning the Thanksgiving Dinner, a prayer of thanks is given for blessings God has provided. The holiday has come to symbolize intercultural peace, opportunity for newcomers and the sanctity of home and family.

Comprised with.Encyclopedia Britannica:.The Mayflower was the name of the ship that carried the Pilgrims from England to Plymouth, Massachusetts, where they established the first permanent colony in 1620 at Plymouth Bay, 37 miles (60 km) southeast of Boston. Although no detailed description of the original vessel exists, marine archaeologists estimate that the square rigged sailing ship weighed about 180 tons and measured 90 feet (27 metres) long.

Plymouth's Thanksgiving began with a few colonists going out looking for turkeys, geese and ducks. 90 or so Wampanoag made a surprise appearance at the settlement's gate, doubtlessly unnerving the 50 or so colonists. Nevertheless, over the next few days the two groups socialized without incident. The Wampanoag contributed venison to the feast, fowl and probably stews, vegetables fish and beer. Since Plymouth had few buildings and manufactured goods, most people ate outside while sitting on the ground or on barrels with plates on their laps.
