There were sports, games, food, dancing, singing, and revelry. They prepared foods such as venison and fowl.

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

A feast would be defined as a meal which has a great abundance and variety of food. To prepare a feast, buy lots of ingredients and make them into abundant and varied dishes. This is traditionally done for holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. But even if you just buy a lot of pizza, with various different toppings, you can still have something that resembles a feast. As long as the diners feel that they have been richly and abundantly fed, the meal will qualify as a feast.

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.
