Thanksgiving Day 2022: Thanksgiving Day is celebrated around the world on the fourth Thursday of November. On November 24 at this time, people celebrate the annual harvest and other blessings from the previous year.


Although there have been many disagreements regarding the First Thanksgiving, it is believed that colonists in New England and Canada regularly observed "thanksgivings," which were days of prayer for blessings like safe travels, military victories, or abundant harvests. The American holiday was influenced by the harvest feast that the Wampanoag people and the English colonists known as the Pilgrims shared in 1621. In 1578, an expedition led by Martin Frobisher celebrated its first Thanksgiving in Canada by giving thanks for having arrived safely.


President Abraham Lincoln declared a national day of Thanksgiving to be observed on November 26 during the American Civil War on October 3, 1863.

Every president after that declared the day a federal holiday every year, with the exception of a few, and set the last Thursday in November as the holiday's date.

In addition, President Franklin D. Roosevelt pushed back the start of the holiday shopping season for Christmas by one week, to the third week of November, in an effort to stimulate the economy.

Roosevelt issued a proclamation in 1942 designating the fourth Thursday in November as Thanksgiving Day following a joint resolution of Congress in 1941. 

The day thus turned into a time for gathering. The holiday on this day evolved from its religious origins and made it possible for immigrants from all backgrounds to take part in a shared tradition.
