Thanksgiving Day in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Thanksgiving is a holiday in the United States that is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It originated as a way to give thanks for the blessings of the harvest and the year.

The first Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims, who were early settlers in America, and the Wampanoag Native American tribe. They came together to give thanks for a successful harvest and to celebrate their friendship.

Nowadays, Thanksgiving is a time for families to gather together, share a meal and give thanks for all the good things in their lives. People often cook a big feast with traditional foods such as roasted turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
