The Origin of Thanksgiving Day

Despite being right next to each other, the origins of Thanksgiving in the US and Canada are completely different. Thanksgiving Day in Canada was first celebrated in 1578, originating from the 3rd trip to Canada of explorer Martin Frobisher. On the way, he encountered many storms, so when he arrived at Nunavut, he decided to organize a party to celebrate his safe journey.

Meanwhile, Thanksgiving in America took place in 1621 with a completely different story. The first American Thanksgiving is considered to take place in the colony of Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts - USA. Between the 16th and 17th centuries, some Englishmen were forced to convert by the emperor. However, these people did not accept and were then spent many years in prison, finally, the emperor forced them to leave England.

Initially, they settled in the Netherlands but soon realized they could not fit in and they were afraid that their descendants would lose their roots. Therefore, a group of 102 people left the Netherlands on the Mayflower to go to America. When they arrived in Massachusetts, just as it entered the fiercest phase of the cold winter (November 1621), half of them had to die from starvation and lack of food. Fortunately, the good Indians here taught them how to survive. In the end, they got up and could take care of their own lives, so they decided to hold a party to thank God for being with them, and to show their sincerity towards the Indians. Since then, every year, the descendants of these "American immigrants" (also known as the Pilgrims) have always celebrated Thanksgiving to thank them for the good things that have come to them in life.

Although historically, Thanksgiving has been around for a long time, this holiday has only become an important national holiday in the United States since the 19th century.

Abraham Lincoln - the first US president to declare Thanksgiving an annual national holiday. Since then, Thanksgiving has just begun to be fixed on the fourth Thursday of November since 1941 under President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
