Our Founding Father, George Washington, Proclaimed Thanksgiving Day an Official American Holiday... click on picture to read his words
Here's the introduction:
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor -- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."
Insolublog, another great example of the greatness of America, humbly reminds us what we so take for granted each day. These are things to truly be thankful for.
Thenagain, there's Dr Phat Tony's version of what happened...
