According to the historical record, the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving celebrations lasted three days. Interestingly enough, that may be understood as how long the celebrations last nowadays. Indeed, people often try to take off the day before or the day after Thanksgiving.The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year. So people may be gone from work Wednesday through Friday. But those days are often spent in setting up and taking down Thanksgiving and setting up for Christmas. Rarely do Thanksgiving celebrations last for more than the actual day. This holds true even though Thanksgiving leftovers may fill the plates for a number of meals thereafter.3 days long

The first Thanksgiving was a kind of harvest festival - the settlers were so happy to have made a successful first harvest in the new world that they had a three-day long celebration.

After a long hard year when, were it not for their native friends, the pilgrims would surely have perished, they were ready for a celebration. Their first harvest was bountiful and they wanted to glorify God's providence and show their gratitude for those who had helped them. The first Thanksgiving feast lasted for three days in December, 1621.

3 days! but it really was not considered a holiday until president Lincon declared it a holiday in 1863 and he was the first one to do this.

commonly known as three days

Thanksgiving holiday tradition traces its origins to a 1621 celebration at Plymouth, in the New World, e.g. long before it became The United States of America. There is also evidence for an earlier harvest celebration by Spanish explorers in Florida during 1565.

There was no popcorn at the First Thanksgiving. But, they had corn on the cob. The First Thanksgiving was 1621. The popcorn thing is a common myth. People might be mistaking it for corn on the cob. Popcorn could not be popped at the time. Im pretty sure they didnt have microwaves in 1621+ Since microwaves have only been in use since the latter half of the 20th century, you are technically correct ... but also very incorrect. Dried corn can be popped several ways such as a hot skillet with a cover or using a warming pan (a pan with a long handle and a cover employed to hold coals for warming a bed) and, commercially, has been popped with a hot-air oven (forced air). The use of popped corn kernels would not have been unusual in any way at the First Thanksgiving regardless of whether it was considered worthy of documentation at that time.

The Macy's Thanksgiving parade in 2011 will be held on Thursday, November 24th, 2011 at 9am - 12pm EST. Therefore, it is estimated to be 3 hours long.

Little did the pilgrims and Indians know when they shared an autumn harvest feast in 1621 that it would be the beginning of an annual day of giving thanks called Thanksgiving. The gathering in 1621 lasted three days and is now known as the first Thanksgiving. The colonists held a second day of thanksgiving in 1623 to celebrate the end of a long drought. Days of thanksgiving were practiced by individual colonies and states from that time on, but it was not until 1789 that President George Washington issued the first official proclamation of a Thanksgiving Day. In 1817, New York became the first of several states to adopt an annual Thanksgiving holiday; however, all did not celebrate it on the same day. In 1827, Sarah Josepha Hale, editor and writer, launched a campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. For the next 36 years, she wrote many editorials and letters to politicians. In 1863, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln headed her request and proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held every year on the last Thursday in November. During the Great Depression in 1939, in an effort to increase holiday sales, President Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving up a week. Because of heavy public opposition, he moved it to the fourth Thursday of November in 1941, which is the day it is celebrated today. Through the years, for many Thanksgiving has lost religious significance that it had in the beginning. It is now a day to meet with family and share a big dinner. Though it is questionable as to whether the pilgrims ate turkey on the first Thanksgiving, it has become the meat of choice for Thanksgiving through the years. Along with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, and pumpkin pie is served. Today, volunteering, especially in the form of food drives, and Thanksgiving Day parades are common. Another popular Thanksgiving tradition is the presidential pardon of a turkey, saving the bird from being eaten at a Thanksgiving feast.
