Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? The first ever Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. For three days this feast was held and it was attended by 90 native Americans and 53 Pilgrims. However Thanksgiving didn’t become a national holiday until over 200 years later. Celebrating Thanksgiving Often, when people think of Thanksgiving they immediately think of turkey, but it’s not just the delicious turkey they have in mind, it’s the stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce and more! Another great reason why Thanksgiving is a loved holiday is because many offices, businesses, schools and other government organizations allow their staff to have a four-day weekend. Many businesses also use this holiday to show their appreciation for their employees.
