    What is Thanksgiving

    Yep, can someone explain me what Thanksgiving is.

    Here in Germany / Russia we do not celebrate this and i don't know what it is anyways.

    You go to your family and eat a turkey, okay.

    But what you Celebrate on thanksgiving?

    Short explanation please.

    Regards Viibez

    /EDIT: Thank you Evelyn for the fast Answer

    Because they were religiously inclined, and wanted to show thanks , they made a celebration / feast to honor the help that they received. "...render Thanksgiving to the Almighty God for all His blessings."

    It wasn't meant to be held as a yearly celebration but as the colonies expanded others held their own celebrations as well, until eventually on November 1, 1777 the first Thanksgiving Proclamation was made by congress.

    The modern relevance is Basically a day to keep your friends and family close, and be grateful for the life you have.

    Okay first you call me a Mexican and do not know the "history" of my name.

    Second you call me a faggot just because i said "oh look the egyptian is funny".

    Look at your profile there is Egyptian flag. If you are not an Egyptian why is there then the Flag.
    Change it.

    Wanna at the third Reason?
