Thanksgiving is a special holiday celebrated by millions of people in the United States.

It is always observed on the fourth Thursday in November.

The history of Thanksgiving dates back to 1621.

When the Pilgrims first arrived in America, they struggled to survive.

Their crops failed and many people got sick.

But the Native American Squanto and his tribe helped the Pilgrims by teaching them how to plant corn and catch fish.

As a thanks for their help, the Pilgrims invited the Native Americans to a big feast.

This feast is considered the first Thanksgiving, a celebration of the fall harvest, and a time to give thanks.

Over time, the tradition of Thanksgiving continued.

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving as a national holiday.

Today, Thanksgiving is still a day to give thanks for all the good things in life.

Families and friends gather together for a big feast that often includes turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Before eating, some people say what they’re thankful for.

Thanksgiving is also a time to volunteer and help others who are less fortunate.

So, in addition to eating lots of yummy food, Thanksgiving is about being grateful and helping others.

Isn’t that a wonderful holiday to celebrate?
