Much of the food served at modern Thanksgiving dinners includes items from the very first celebration: turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes, numerous other vegetables, breads and puddings.
Initially this meal was held to thank God for the blessings of a good crop, having food for the winter.
Thanksgiving is a very family oriented holiday. Relatives often travel great distances to be with each other to celebrate. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel time of the entire year. It's also the official start of the holiday season.
