The First Thanksgiving


The First American Thanksgiving was celebrated in Massachusetts by the original colonists who settled in the "New World". After a brutal first winter that claimed nearly half of the Plymouth population, hope returned with the bountiful corn crop of 1621.  So that all could feast and show gratitude through prayer, Governor William Bradford designated December 13, 1621 to be a day to rejoice and share the blessings of the harvest.


Several days were spent in preparation of "Feast Day".  The women worked tirelessly as they boiled, baked and roasted over the hearth fires.  Children helped by turning meat on a spit.  Native Americans brought an offering of wild turkey and venison (deer meat) to share with the colonists.  Hunting trips by the men of the village yielded geese, ducks and fish.


Pilgrims and Native Americans sat around a huge outdoor table that presented an abundance of meats, journey cakes, corn meal bread with nuts, succotash and a dessert of pumpkins stewed in maple sap.  The colonists feasted, prayed and sang for three days before returning to their chores.


Even though the reason for the season and celebration originated on that winter's day in 1621, the first nationally-celebrated Thanksgiving Day wasn't  proclaimed until 1863.  President Abraham Lincoln set aside the last Thursday in November as "a day of Thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father".


Let us all gather, remember and be thankful as we enjoy this holiday.
