Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival. Traditionally, it is a time to
give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. It is a
holiday celebrated primarily in Canada and the United States. While
perhaps religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now primarily identified as
a secular holiday.

The date and location of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic
of modest contention. Though the earliest attested Thanksgiving
celebration was on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine,
Florida, the traditional "first Thanksgiving" is venerated as having
occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621.

Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in
Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.
Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of
family members and friends.

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, celebrated on the fourth Thursday in
November, is an annual federal holiday in the United States. It was
historically a religious observation to give thanks to God, but it is
now considered a secular holiday.

Most people celebrate by gathering at home with family or friends for a
holiday feast. Though the holiday's origins can be traced to harvest
festivals which have been celebrated in many cultures since ancient
times, the American holiday has religious undertones related to the
deliverance of the English settlers by Native Americans after the harsh
winter at Plymouth, Massachusetts.



The first recorded Thanksgiving ceremony took place on September 8,
1565, when 600 Spanish settlers, under the leadership of Pedro Menйndez
de Avilйs, landed at what is now St. Augustine, Florida, and immediately
held a Mass of Thanksgiving for their safe delivery to the New World;
there followed a feast and celebration. As the La Florida colony did
become part of the United States, this can be classified as the first

The Spanish colonial town of San Elizario (San Elceario), near El Paso,
Texas, has also been said to be the site of the first Thanksgiving to be
held in what is now known as the United States, though that was not a
harvest festival. Spaniard Don Juan de Oсate ordered his expedition
party to rest and conducted a mass in celebration of thanksgiving on
April 30, 1598.
