This list of 10 Thanksgiving websites reads like a who’s who of influencers in America over the last 40 years. The History Channel, National Geographic, Better Homes & Gardens, and the rest have impacted most Americans lives; whether directly or indirectly by influencing parents, teachers, and culture. The sources of these Thanksgiving websites alone should be enough to encourage you to take a moment and click them open, but there’s another reason you should view these sites. It’s because they answer questions, solve problems, and share excellent ideas. Will every site fit your needs? Probably not, but I’d wager two or three will. For example, I never knew the proper way to carve a turkey until now, do you?
10 Thanksgiving Websites
The History Channel — The History of Thanksgiving “In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.”
