1. History of Thanksgiving

What is Thanksgiving? What is the true meaning of Thanksgiving? And why is Thanksgiving so important?

The history of Thanksgiving in North America is rooted in English traditions that date back to before the Protestant Reformation. It is harvest festivals, even that the harvest time of New England occurs well before the date of late November when the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States is celebrated. Prayers of Thanksgiving and specific thanksgiving celebrations are commonplace in all religions following harvests and other periods.

According to the English tradition, Thanksgiving and other notable religious services of Thanksgiving were popular in the English Reformation under Henry VIII and in reaction to the numerous religious holidays on the Catholic calendar.

Prior to 1536, there were 95 church holidays and 52 Sundays where people were expected to attend church but not work and even pay for extravagant celebrations. The 1536 reforms cut down the number of church holidays to 27. However, certain Puritans favoured eliminating all church holidays, including Easter and Christmas.

The celebrations were to be substituted by special Days of Fasting or Days of Thanksgiving as a reaction to the events that Puritans considered to be acts of divine intervention. Unexpected catastrophes or threats of judgment from the heavenly realms required Days of Fasting.

Particular blessings, believed to be being from God, were the basis for days of Thanksgiving. For instance, Days of Fasting were named in response to flooding in 1611, drought in 1613, and plagues during 1604-1622. The days of Thanksgiving were named in the aftermath of the victory over the Spanish Armada in 1588 and after the release to Queen Anne from the Spanish Armada in 1605.

A unique annually observed Day of Thanksgiving began in 1606 following the demise of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 and transformed to Guy Fawkes Day on November 5.
