The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the pilgrims in 1621 to give thanks to god for the plentiful harvest and all the blessing he bestowed upon them. That is celebrated with all the family and we eat a big dinner. This traditional meal includes turkey, cranberry, sauce, potatoes, stuffing, and a load of other good food. Sometimes grand-parents tell stories about being grateful for something after dinner.
