Thanksgiving Day

November 28

Public holiday

It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. The Thanksgiving holiday’s history in North America is rooted in English traditions dating from the Protestant Reformation. It also has aspects of a harvest festival, even though the harvest in New England occurs well before the late-November date on which the modern Thanksgiving holiday is celebrated.
