What is Thanksgiving and where did it come from?
Celebrated primarily in Canada and the United States, Thanksgiving creates the opportunity for people to give thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. They come together to share food, enjoy parades and watch American football.
Thanksgiving Day has been an annual holiday in the United States since 1863. However, not everyone considered Thanksgiving Day to be a celebration. Each year since 1970, a group of Native Americans and their supporters have staged a protest for a National Day of Mourning at Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts on Thanksgiving Day.
The first Thanksgiving Day was held in the city of El Paso, Texas in 1598. Many people trace the origins of the modern Thanksgiving Day to the harvest celebration that the Pilgrims held in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621. However, their first true thanksgiving was in 1623, when they gave thanks for rain that ended a drought.
In the second half of the 1600s, Thanksgivings started to become annual events. However, it was celebrated on different days in different communities and in some places there were more than one thanksgiving each year. George Washington, the first president of the United States, proclaimed the first national Thanksgiving Day in 1789.
In terms of Thanksgiving dinner ideas and decor ideas, switch your imagination and design with the things around you in the house. Check below some decor ideas:
– use repurposed candleholders for easy fall displays of small pumpkins and gourds. Look for inexpensive candleholders in varying heights at a garage sale or antiques store, then spray-paint black for a unified look;
– adorn a piece of wooden wall art with a lacy bunting for the full rustic effect — placing some wheat in a vase beside it is a good idea, too;
– save a seat for your guests with a glamorous piece of shiny corn, complete with their name in neat cursive on the husk;
– show off bittersweet berries in gold, green and clear bottles on a windowsill or shelf. Tiny gourds between the bottles add another shape to the seasonal mix;
The original dinner idea includes a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables.
