Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a traditional North American holiday, which is a form of harvest festival. First celebrated in what would become Canada in the late 1500s, Thanksgiving was later also celebrated in what would become the United States in the early 1600s. Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.
