My blogger friends from other countries have asked what exactly America is celebrating each year on the fourth Thursday in November? It is not just overeating , football , and Black Friday shopping which has made its way into Thursday Thanksgiving Day at some stores eager to start the Christmas buying season.
It was started in the early years of our history in 1600s in what is now known as Massachusetts. Today, enjoy your family dinner, watch some football, maybe even shop or plan your shopping for tomorrow. But also remember our history, the Pilgrims, and the kind and generous Indians, add these many things to others of which you can give thanks.
Now you know “The Rest of the Story” of Thanksgiving!
