The first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, to commemorate the harvest reaped by the Plymouth Colony after a harsh winter. In that year Governor William Bradford proclaimed a day of thanksgiving. The colonists celebrated it as a traditional English harvest feast, to which they invited the local Wampanoag Indians.
Now every year we celebrate Thanksgiving to remember the brave Pilgrims and to give thanks for all of our blessings. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada.
"Soup's On!" (pictured above), a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) and 1st release in the Signature Series (2000) always reminds me of Thanksgiving, a day when family and friends gather together. In keeping with the holiday theme of giving thanks, during the socializing or meal, it's a time to share what we're thankful for and/or tell about experiences during the past year which have caused us to feel grateful.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who visit either the Website, Blog and/or Internet Cafe today.
