They later became the founding pilgrims of USA. After many hardships and losing most of their people, they started afresh at Plymouth. With renewed hope they built homes and planted crops. When they first reaped their harvest in 1621, they dedicated a day for thanking the lord. Even after so much suffering, they were able to sustain a new life with God’s blessing, so they wanted to thank him for everything. From then onwards, with different and on varied dates, this day is celebrated. President Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November in America, with festive meals, parades, football, family and friends and turkey meal.
