Object of the Week
Program (November 23, 1944)
As we make our way further into the month of November, we cross paths with one of the most notable and historically rich holidays, Thanksgiving. We celebrate Thanksgiving every fourth Thursday in November in the United States. The first Thanksgiving was held in 1621, where the English colonists we know as Pilgrims celebrated their harvest as part of religion alongside the Wampanoag Indians. Though religion was the basis of this holiday, it has since been celebrated as a secular holiday as well. With humble beginnings in Plymouth, Massachusetts, this holiday has spread to Canada, Puerto Rico, Liberia, and Norfolk Island.
