Thanksgiving is an important holiday in America and Canada.
Families gather together and have a large meal consisting of turkey, cranberry sauce, potatoes, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, vegetables, and pumpkin pie.
But where did it all begin?
The tradition goes back to 1621 when Pilgrims who settled at Plymouth, Massachusetts were celebrating their first successful corn harvest.
