Thanksgiving… (what I didn’t know)

Somehow yesterday I found myself reading about Thanksgiving. Living in WA State and visiting Canada as often as I have, I did know that Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October.

But I didn’t know that in 1621 it was given it’s name and place in the world.
That although celebrations of the harvest took place, it’s formal name comes from the USA name for the holiday.

But I found these links and learned about Thanksgiving around the world.
