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.
