Private Home Health Care wishes all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
We wonder if back in 1621 the Pilgrims from England and the Wampanoag Native Americans indigenous to the land knew the tradition they were starting!
The holiday continued over many years, from 1621, to George Washington’s time through Abraham Lincoln all the way up to today.
The day of the holiday however, has changed over the years. For example, Thanksgiving has been on a Friday in the past and also on the last Thursday in November.
It wasn’t officially the fourth Thursday in November until the time of Franklin D. Roosevelt. While he was President, Congress signed the law making Thanksgiving the next to last Thursday in November.
Our wish for all is that you feel very blessed this holiday. We hope that you are able to share a meal and time with family, friends or a group of familiar people.
