On this holiday, we give thanks and celebrate the harvest. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we'll be learning more about Thanksgiving.
Linus, we have so much to be thankful for.
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday observed annually on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. While other such celebratory meals may have been held earlier, the Pilgrims' 1621 feast in Plymouth, Massachusetts is most widely accepted as the first Thanksgiving celebration. After arriving from England via the Mayflower, these settlers were taught to harvest by local Native Americans. The Pilgrims then celebrated their success with the natives by holding a three-day feast inspired by their religious traditions.
感恩節是一個在美國每年十一月的第四個星期四舉辦的節日。雖然其它像這樣的節慶大餐可能更早就舉行過，清教徒們 1621 年在麻州普利茅斯的盛宴才是最廣泛被認可為第一個感恩節慶典。在經由五月花號自英國抵達後，這些移民們受當地的印第安人教導如何收成。清教徒們接著藉由舉行受他們宗教習俗所啟發的三天盛宴來和印第安人們同慶他們的成功。
As Thanksgiving became more popular across the country, similar celebrations were observed by other North American colonies. In 1863, a proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln saw Thanksgiving become an annual event observed on the last Thursday in November, while President Franklin Delano Roosevelt officially signed the holiday into federal law in 1941 as the fourth Thursday during that month.
隨著感恩節在全國變得更加盛行，相似的慶典也被其它北美殖民地舉辦。1863 年時，一項由亞伯拉罕‧林肯總統所發布的公告認可感恩節成為一個在十一月最後一個星期四舉行的年度盛事，而富蘭克林‧德拉諾‧羅斯福總統在 1941 年正式將此節日訂為那月的第四個星期四到聯邦法裡。
Since then, Thanksgiving traditions have varied, but often include participating in games, dressing up, and feasting. Though Thanksgiving is mainly a secular holiday that revolves around sharing a meal with loved ones, many people give thanks to God by attending church services and saying grace before the meal.
And we ask that you look after us on this holiday season that we may never forget how very fortunate we are. Amen. Amen.
Others help out the less fortunate by volunteering in the community. Along with turkey, Thanksgiving dinner often consists of stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. Beginning in the late 1940s, the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation has evolved into a ritual in which a presidential pardon allows two turkeys to live instead of being turned into food.
You are hereby pardoned. Give them a round of applause.
Various cities also hold annual parades: Detroit's American Thanksgiving Parade and New York City's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade are some of the bigger and more well-known processions. The holiday has been associated with American football, and professional games have been played on Thanksgiving for decades. Many families follow the tradition of watching football or the Macy's Parade on Thanksgiving. They may also watch Thanksgiving-themed TV shows and films, as there have been many throughout the years.
And I'm thankful I get to spend Thanksgiving with my family, these alternative rockers, and my favorite bartender.
The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday. While some schools and businesses are closed, many stores use the day to usher in the Christmas shopping season by holding major sales.
The observance of Thanksgiving is not without controversy. Some feel the holiday celebrates the violent conquest of Native Americans by the Europeans. This has led to some cities holding protest events, such as a National Day of Mourning, instead.
Holidays similar to Thanksgiving are also celebrated by other countries on various dates and for various reasons. For example, Canada celebrates Thanksgiving on the second Monday in October.
