Where did Thanksgiving originate?

Answer

Thanksgiving originated from the first English pilgrims in America in 1620. The pilgrims, who were escaping religious persecution in England, fled to America via Holland where they celebrated their arrival by giving thanks because the journey had been extremely difficult. The surviving pilgrims also gave thanks to the native Indian community who helped them survive their first year, helping them to a bumper harvest the following year and the celebrations were marked every year since then.
