A super happy Thanksgiving from our turkeys ;) May your day be filled with thankfulness that lasts the whole year!
Even though the first national Thanksgiving was proclaimed by George Washington in 1789 and not celebrated officially until Abraham Lincoln in 1863, well after the Pilgrims in the Plymouth Colony celebrated in 1621, this was not the first thanksgiving recorded in our nations history. It was 1540 when Francisco Vasquez de Coronado conducted a thanksgiving in the Texas Panhandle thanking God for the success of their voyage. Then on Dec.4, 1619 on the James River in Virginia, the Berkeley Hundred deemed this day after landing in the New World as a yearly and perpetually kept Holy Day of Thanksgiving. Everyone in our beautiful country has had reason to give thanks to The Lord. May we continue this tradition. Many Blessings to you on this Blessed day:)
