History and Significance:

Long before the Pilgrims arrived on the East Coast, Native American tribes inhabited the area. The Plymouth Colony, composed of English Protestants known as Puritans, sought religious freedom and embarked on a journey to the New World. The Mayflower, carrying 101 passengers, landed in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, after a challenging journey. The Thanksgiving festival originated as a gesture of gratitude for the assistance of the Wampanoag Native Americans and the survival of the Pilgrims through a harsh winter.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving in 2023, let’s remember the history and significance of this holiday—a time to come together, express gratitude, and appreciate the richness of our lives. Happy Thanksgiving!
