> Thanksgiving Day used to be a uniquely North American holiday, for those who live in Canada and the United States. It celebrates the native American Indians sharing food with the Pilgrims (who were from northern Europe), hundreds of years ago, who had just recently traveled to North America to start a new life… Times were hard and the new pioneers were hungry, so when food was shared together it was a peaceful and wonderful day - Then Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving Day a national holiday back in the 1800’s here in the US…I believe Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October...
> Back in the 1970’s, when I lived in Denmark, I enjoyed telling everyone about the North American Thanksgiving Holiday. At that time, most Danes had not heard about the holiday, just as I had not heard of many of the Danish holidays - so it was fun to share our different holidays -
