A brief history of Thanksgiving, what it's all about and what you should try eating for it. This year America celebrates it on Thursday 28 November 2013.


  1. Thanksgiving dates back as far as 1621 when Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared autumn harvest feasts. In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln declared that a national Thanksgiving day should be held every November. It is now celebrated across America with families getting together eating turkey dinners, pumkin pies, and watching Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
