Laudem Gloriae discusses the origins of our American Thanksgiving.

The persistence of American Thanksgiving customs is impressive. While cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie may not have been on the menu at Plymouth in 1621, when venison and an unspecified "fowle"; graced the communal table, Americans have celebrated their unique holiday for giving thanks to God in ways that are highly recognizable from generation to generation, from century to century.

I was reading that most of the traditions we use today came from the mid 1800's, when Pres. Lincoln declared it a National Holiday. (It was Pres. Roosevelt who designated it be the last Thursday of November).

Wow! "The Landing of the Pilgrim Fathers" was another incredible poem! Thank you for the link.
