THANKSGIVING

Many of you know thanksgiving is coming up and everyone is ready to eat that marvelous food it’s not always about the food I’m going to tell you about the history of Thanksgiving. The first thanksgiving was on the fourth week of November in 1621 they used to call it national mourning day the first feast had deer meat and foul also Indian corn. But they are many thanksgiving traditions that people do the biggest Thanksgiving traditions are football and parades. In an­cient harvest festivals, people usually celebrated with games and sports, so you could argue the football tradition has very deep roots. The traditional American Thanksgiving football game was usually between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers, but as football has become more popular, there are now more games on Thanksgiving Day. The tradition of Thanksgiving parades goes back to the early 20th century, when people began to associate Thanksgiving with the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In order to attract customers, stores like Macy's sponsored elaborate parades like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. They are some weird traditions like in my family on thanksgiving we put our names in a bowl and we get out a map of the united states and we spin whoever name in a circle and tell them to walk towards the map and whatever state they choose is where we spend our Christmas. Another one is before thanksgiving we have another drawing on who gets what foods to cook.
