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.
