C377 First U.S. Thanksgiving 150th Anniversary
November 28, 2013
On November 28, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues a new souvenir sheet celebrating the
150th Anniversary of the First Official Thanksgiving Celebration in the United States. In the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims were blessed with a bountiful harvest and enough food to survive the
coming winter. They rejoiced in God's blessing and provision, and enjoyed a three day celebration that included feasting, games and singing. Pilgrim Edward Winslow recorded these words
describing America's first Thanksgiving, "Our harvest being gotten in, our Governor sent four men on fowling so that we might ... rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our
labors... Many of the Indians amongst us and ... their greatest King, Massasoit, with some 90 men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted." New England continued to celebrate
Thanksgiving throughout the years. It wasn't until 1863, however, that President Abraham Lincoln officially proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday.
