感恩节用英语怎么说:Thanksgiving; Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day is the most truly American of the national Holidays in the United States and is most closely connected with the earliest history of the country.
In 1620 the settlers or Pilgrims they sailed to America on the May flower seeking a place where they could have freedom of worship. After a tempestuous two-month voyage they landed at in icy November what is now Plymouth Massachusetts.
During their first winter over half of the settlers died ofstarvation or epidemics. Those who survived began sowing in the first spring.
All summer long they waited for the harvests with great anxiety knowing that their lives and the future existence of the colony depended on the coming harvest. Finally the fields produced a yield rich beyond expectations. And therefore it was decided that a day of thanksgiving to the Lord be fixed. Years later President of the United States proclaimed the fourth Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day every year. The celebration of Thanksgiving Day has been observed on that date until today.
