    Christmas, one of the most widely celebrated holidays is approaching. Oops! I meant Thanksgiving, a common misconception. This prolonged squabble has been long lasting, as many communities all across the states believe Christmas should be a two month long season. Tables all around the world will display a variety of foods that have their own story and culture correlating with it. Many people assume Thanksgiving is about having a dinner with families, but not many know the history and influences.
      Thanksgiving, an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada is celebrated on the last Thursday of November. On this day, in the year of 1621, Pilgrims (english colonists) from Plymouth and the native american tribe Wampanoag took part in a large feast. It included and still to this day includes: turkey, ham, bread stuffing, pumpkin pie, potatoes, cranberries, etc. This feast resulted in a treaty between the two. Although it was ephemeral. It was soon violated and dishonored in 1675 due to King Philip’s War. The tradition of this occasion prolonged in the United States among the New England Colonists. However it was not made a national holiday until President Abraham Lincoln on October 3, 1863 proclaimed it so.
