Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Because of the longstanding traditions of the holiday, the celebration often extends to the weekend that falls closest to the day it is celebrated. Now where did Thanksgiving come from? Why do we celebrate it? Let us explain.

In the mid 1600´s, a large number of people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to land and settle in a place called Plymouth (America). The first winter they had to survive was extremely cold and the crops they had planted failed in the new climate and unfamiliar soil. As a result of this winter more than half of the people died due to the lack of food.

The few people who survived were saved as Native Americans taught them how to grow corn and other crops, all of which were new food for the settlers. In the next autumn, bountiful crops of corn, barley, beans and pumpkins were harvested. The settlers had much to be thankful for, so a feast was organized. A feast not only for showing gratitude for a good harvest but also to thank the Native Americans for teaching them how to grow and cook these new types of food. This feast is now known as Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving has now has turned into a day to feast with loved ones and to give thanks for the many blessings we have received. As many people share this time with family and friends, thanksgiving is amongst the busiest long-distance travel periods of the year. During the 6-day Thanksgiving travel period, the number of long-distance trips increases by a staggering 54 percent!
