Did the pilgrims celebrate Thanksgiving every year?

No, the Pilgrims did not have a harvest feast the following year (1622), because the harvest was so poor. In fact, they did not begin to prosper until around 1625. The harvest feast was not considered a "day of thanksgiving" by the English--to them, a day of thanksgiving was a religious observance. The Pilgrims did have a day of thanksgiving in 1623, not for the harvest, but for rain, which ended a long drought. Over the next 150 years, harvest feasts were held sporadically throughout the American colonies, in good years. It was not until 1789 that George Washington declared "a day of public thanksgiving and prayer", to give thanks to God for the establishment of a self-governing nation of people. Even then, Thanksgiving was not an annual holiday. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation setting the date of the Thanksgiving holiday that we now observe.
