Thanksgiving is a time for people all across the United States to give thanks. They celebrate with parades, lots of food, and spending time with their friends and family. The tradition began several years ago with the pilgrims and their search for freedom. They landed on Plymouth Rock. Their special friends the Native Americans helped them to plant crops and taught them the way to survive with pretty much nothing. They had a huge feast together to celebrate. Now we all tell what we are thankful for and have a meal with the people that we love. This holiday has changed so much.
