A quick history of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is primarily an American and Canadian holiday, dedicated to express gratitude to God for a good harvest. The American Thanksgiving origins began with the Colonists in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621, although there is evidence of a similar Spanish celebration as early as 1565. The Canadian Thanksgiving, which is celebrated earlier than the American holiday, began in the early 17th century through the French settlers.
