What is the history of Thanksgiving?


When was the first Thanksgiving? How and why did this tradition begin? Why did early settlers like turkey so much? Is Thanksgiving celebrated in any other countries?

    Much of the information about the actual 1621 Thanksgiving comes directly from diaries of the settlers, their leaders & other Mayflower passengers called "strangers", all preserved in archives in Pilgrim Hall Museum and additional museums.
