Blytheville High School
Class Of 1957
IN HONOR OF THANKSGIVING DAY
NOVEMBER 27, 2014
 
Tucked between the two monster-sized holidays of Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving receives far less attention.  But Thanksgiving is a very important holiday, especially in the busy lives of Americans.  It is a time to kick back and relax, watch a football game or go to a movie, and enjoy a huge feast.
 
 
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated between the Pilgrims and the Indians in 1621 and was a three-day affair.  Life for the early settlers had been difficult; the fall harvest was time for celebration, and also a time to thank God for a good crop.  The Pilgrims and the Indians created a huge feast, including a wide variety of animals and fowl - as well as fruits and vegetables from the fall harvest.
 
After the first Thanksgiving, the observance was sporadic and almost forgotten until the early 1800s.  In 1941, Congress made it a national holiday and set the date as the fourth Thursday in November.
 
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
