We already know the history of Thanksgiving. Puritan people, unhappy with the religious ways of James I, decided to quit England for good and set off on the Mayflower searching for the coast of Massachussets. If you read London by Rutherfurd, he even makes the Mayflower departs from London before getting to Southhampton.
To mark a difference, Thanksgiving is the 2nd Monday in October, while Americans celebrate it on the 4th Thursday in November. For Canadians, Thanksgiving is mostly a celebration of the harvesting.
