On November 28th, millions of Americans will be sitting down to a Thanksgiving turkey dinner, no doubt to be followed by a delicious pumpkin pie.'

Giving thanks for a good harvest dates back to the founding fathers in New England. The first Thanksgiving, which lasted three whole days, is supposed to have taken place in 1621!

The Pilgrims and native American Wampanoag consumed a delicious list of native foods like venison, turkey, lobster, clams, pumpkin and squash.'

Nowadays, it's even becoming fashionable to celebrate with a Thanksgiving picnic.
