Thanksgiving in the United States is a time to gather with family and friends, share a traditional meal and express gratitude for the good things in life. It can also be a time of service to others in the community. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. It was customary to express gratitude for a bountiful harvest in the cultures of both the English settlers — called the Pilgrims — who sailed from England in 1620 and the Native Americans they encountered. The Pilgrims had arrived the year before on the ship Mayflower. They were short of food and it was too late to plant crops. Half the colony died during the winter of 1620–1621. In the spring, local Wampanoag Indians taught the colonists how to grow corn (maize) and other native crops. They helped them master hunting and fishing and showed the colonists how to cook cranberries and corn. The colonists had bountiful crops in the fall of 1621. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November as the national Thanksgiving holiday. In 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt signed a law fixing Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November. Gathering Together and Helping Out. Many Thanksgiving traditions are reminders of that 1621 harvest celebration. Sheaves of wheat or corn are often used as decorations. Foods eaten at the first feast are still served at Thanksgiving dinner: Roast turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. Many people volunteer to prepare and serve Thanksgiving meals to the needy. Others donate to food drives, work at food warehouses or deliver groceries to soup kitchens, churches and other charitable groups. The day after Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. One whimsical modern practice is the annual “pardoning” of a turkey by the U.S. president, thus sparing the bird from the dinner table. The bird goes on to live out its fortunate life at a petting zoo.
