US weekend since 1863

Thanksgiving Day has been an annual holiday in the United States since 1863. But not everyone sees Thanksgiving Day as a reason for the celebration.

Since 1970, a group of Native Americans and their followers have organized an annual protest for a National Mourning Day at Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts on Thanksgiving Day. American Indian Heritage Day is also observed at this time of year.

There are claims that the first Thanksgiving Day was held in the city of El Paso, Texas, 1598. Another early event was held in Virginia in 1619. Many trace the origins of the modern-day of thanksgiving to the harvest celebration held by the Pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1621. But their first real thanksgiving was in 1623 when they thanked for the rain that ended a drought. This early thanksgiving took the form of a special church service rather than a feast.

During the second half of the 17th century, thanksgiving after the harvest became more common and became annual events. But they were celebrated on different days in different communities and in some places there was more than one thanksgiving every year. George Washington, the first president of the United States, proclaimed the first national Thanksgiving Day in 1789. {Macy’s thanksgiving day parade}
