Thanksgiving History

People had been celebrating their bounty and harvest and giving thanks with banquets long before the actual Thanksgiving was recognized.

But, it was FDR who actually signed the bill making it a federal holiday during his tenure at President.

Setting aside time to be thankful and count your blessings is a practice that many have done for thousands of years.

Modern America has changed it a bit–making it more of a food-centered holiday, with football and parades.

There is some dispute over whether or not the “first Thanksgiving” even actually took place. For decades, American school children have been taught that the Pilgrims and the Indians (as they were called, Native American is now more widely used) put aside their differences and celebrated a meal together after a drought year.

A proclamation by JFK acknowledged as much, but many historians dispute whether there is any real evidence of this.

Turkey at Thanksgiving

If there was a first Thanksgiving in the colonies, it is much more likely that deer was served instead of turkey.

Nevertheless, the turkey has become the centerpiece of Thanksgiving dinner.

A cookbook titled The White House Cookbook was published in 1887 and listed turkey as one of the main dishes. And, it stuck!

In fact, turkey is now so popular at Thanksgiving that many people refer to it as “Turkey Day.”
