Everyone knows the story of the first Thanksgiving, when a
small group of Massachusetts's settlers celebrated making it
through the year by feasting with their Native-American
neighbors. But the story of Thanksgiving goes back much
further, to ancient harvest festivals, and the holiday has
been transformed over time into today's celebration marked by
family, food and football.
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS is a warm look at this particularly
American celebration. Discover how New York was the first
state to officially declare a day of Thanksgiving, and how
President Lincoln first made Thanksgiving a national holiday
in 1863. Explore period accounts and art that bring
Thanksgiving celebrations through the centuries to life, and
find out the origins of traditions like the Macy's parade. And
why do we serve turkey on Thanksgiving anyway?
It's an intriguing look at the sometimes surprising tales
behind one of America's most beloved holidays.
