Today is Thanksgiving in the United States of America. Today is a day for family and friends to be together. We give thanks for our many blessing. For most Americans, we first give thanks for our family and our friends. We believe we are blessed to live in this country.
Thanksgiving has been celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November since 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed it a national holiday. The first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 when the pilgrims had their first harvest in the New World. This first Thanksgiving was shared with 90 Native American Indians and 53 pilgrims.
The Colorado Traveling Ducks and their humans wish you a pleasant day with your family and friends, giving thanks while enjoying a wonderful meal.
