How did Thanksgiving start?

As a matter of fact, almost every nation celebrates many important days with gratitude for harvest. Thanksgiving celebrated in North America is based on the British traditions that came with the Reform movements.

In the British tradition, Thanksgiving and special Thanksgiving religious services became important during the 8th Henry Reformation. Thanksgiving was born as a reaction to the religious days in the Catholic Calendar in England. Before 1536, there were 95 church days and 52 Sunday services. With the reform in 1536, the number of church days decreased to 27. But some Puritans wanted to eliminate all church days, including Christmas and Easter. These days instead of ‘Fasting Days’ or ‘Thanksgiving Days’ wanted to be brought.

Sudden disasters and judicial threats as ‘Fasting Days’; the things given by God, such as special gratitude, were called ‘Thanksgiving’. Fasting Days were organized for the drought in 1611, the flood disaster in 1613 and the plague epidemic in 1604 and 1622, while Thanksgiving was held in 1588 against the Spanish Armada and the ruling of Queen Anne of Great Britain in 1705.

An unusual Thanksgiving celebration in 1606 was developed with the revelation of the Gunpowder Conspiracy in 1605 and the Guy Fawkes Night on November 5th.
