Promotional Ideas for Thanksgiving Day
Feasts of Thanksgiving have been held throughout history to commemorate the end of the harvest season. In the United States, Thanksgiving Day originated in 1621 in Plymouth Massachusetts when the Pilgrims invited the local Native Americans to join them in a feast. Thanksgiving signals the end of the Fall and beginning of the winter holidays as well as the time for families to be together and be thankful for their blessings in the last year.
