Thanksgiving Day is traditionally celebrated in the USA on the last Thursday in November – as a general peace and harvest festival, which was first celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621 after the harvest in the Plymouth colony in what is now the US state of Massachusetts. On the Old Continent, too, people like to take up this custom in appreciation of their ties with the “New World.
