Why is Thanksgiving celebrated? Origin and history
Traditionally, family and friends gather and enjoy a special dinner with different meals that have become the menu of the day. Those foods have source dating back to 1621, when a group of colonists set out by ship from England, but had a rough voyage that forced them to anchor in a port in Massachusetts, formerly Plymouth.
They spent a winter filled with hardship, famine, and disease. Fortunately, they had the support and help of the indigenous Wampanoag, who taught them techniques of growing corn, hunting and fishing. In gratitude, during the following autumn the colonists offered a great banquet in gratitude for the good harvest, and of course they shared it with the natives, who also brought some food and drinks.
