What Thanksgiving means?
In Europe, the end of the harvest was always celebrated for two reasons: to thank the goodness of the land because it provided sustenance for the rest of the year but also to celebrate the joy after a well done job with the family, neighbors and friends.
This tradition went to America with the Europeans. Today, this event is directly related to EE. UU. and Canada because they have kept this celebration alive in honor of the winter of 1620-1621. That winter, the colonists were hungry because of food shortages as the harvest had not been very good. The following spring, indigenous people of the area taught them the best way to sow those lands. History says that the next autumn, in 1621, colonialists got wonderful crops and they invited the Indians to share a meal with them in order to thank them.
So, Thanksgiving is therefore the day when you thank all the people who helped us when we needed.
