When we think of Thanksgiving, we think of turkey and pilgrims. It is America's most beloved national holiday, but its history is all over the place. Much of the details have been argued for and second-guessed. We know that the first Thanksgiving was a multiple-day celebration that included the Wampanoag Tribe and King Massasoit. Thanks and Prayers and special Thanksgiving ceremonies are very common among most religions after harvest and other times.
