A holiday is a day on which individuals aren't expected to follow usual or even any work schedules. The day is supposed to honor a particular event or person. So Thanksgiving was made a holiday through the national proclamation of 16th U.S. President Abraham Lincoln [February 12, 1809-April 15, 1865]. The Lincoln Proclamation of Thanksgiving Day was issued on October 3, 1863. Subsequently, under the efforts of 32nd U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt [January 30, 1882-April 12, 1945], Thanksgiving Day became a federal holiday [55 Stat 862] in 1941.
