In 2021 Thanksgiving Day fall on the 25th November, which is the last Thursday of the month. When the holiday was first introduced in the US, the senate decided that it will always fall on the last Thursday of November. Later, however, they changed their minds after taking into account the fact that the month sometimes has five Thursdays. That is why, they decided to have the holiday fall on the fourth Thursday of November. In Canada, on the other hand, the holiday is celebrated on the second Monday of October and in this year it was celebrated on the 11th October.

What is Thanksgiving and why is it celebrated?
The tradition of Thanksgiving was first brought to the USA by the Pilgrims and the Puritans from England in the 1620s and 1630s. It is believed that the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in 1621 with a special feast, organized by the Pilgrims as a thank you to the Native Americans, who helped them survive the winter. The holiday was first proclaimed as a national holiday by George Washington in 1789 “as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God”.
