In 1621, an amazing holiday was created,THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!It all started when a small ship(boat) called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England carrying more than 100 passengers all looking for a new home in the New World!!!!!  They arrived in Massachusetts Bay and built a village . They were known as the Pilgrims. They had a feast that is known today as the First Thanksgiving celebration! That is why that most families have a feast that includes a turkey a the main meal.Now, families have a lot of different traditions on how they celebrate Thanksgiving. Some of the most popular traditions are getting together with family and friends, having a big family dinner and, learning about Thanksgiving history. I hope that you have an AWESOME Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
