Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
We're sure that all of you moms out there have your recipes ready by now for this special day. Thanksgiving started back in 1621 when the Pilgrims gathered together to celebrate their first harvest. It was in 1863 that President Abraham Lincoln declared it a national holiday.
Then, in 1942 President Franklin Roosevelt established the fourth Thursday in November as Thanksgiving day. The typical Thanksgiving meal usually consists of bread stuffing, potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and don't forget the turkey! This year, Thanksgiving falls on November 24th. So gather your loved ones around and enjoy this delicious holiday!
