The Big Scene at Grandma's House

Record #:
Although Governor William Bradford of Plymouth Colony proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving in 1621, it was not until Abraham Lincoln officially made Thanksgiving the last Thursday in November that the holiday was celebrated with any regularity. This was in 1863 and, in 1941, after much confusion when FDR moved Thanksgiving to the third Thursday, Congress declared Thanksgiving to be held on the last Thursday of November, when it is still celebrated today.
