Thanksgiving is an annual one-day holiday to return thanks for the abundant blessings of God. Traditionally held at the close of the harvest season, it has been designated in the US (since 1941) on the fourth Thursday of November and in Canada on the second Monday in October. These annual celebrations have their history rooted in harvest festivals and feasts celebrated by early settlers and explorers and particularly in the well-documented Thanksgiving held by the colonists at Plymouth in 1621.
