Originating in 1621, Thanksgiving in America began as a feast at Plymouth in Massachusetts to celebrate the plentiful harvest. However, America is not the only country to celebrate Thanksgiving. Canada began its celebrations in 1578, when a fellow named Martin Frobisher safely found a northern passage from England. In both countries, it is a tradition to feast in November. Since this time, it is customary for people to both feast and give thanks.
