On November 28th Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving Day, a holiday feast that dates back to 1621 when the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered for American’s “first Thanksgiving.” It wasn’t until 1863 before Thanksgiving officially became a national holiday when President Abraham Lincoln declared that it be celebrated on the last Thursday in the month of November. There are many traditions that have been added on to this special Thursday over the years, such as the Macy’s Day parade. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the most widely watched parade in America, attracting millions of people to the streets of New York, and millions more will watch the televised event that features over-sized balloons, marching bands from around the country, and some the most creative floats ever seen.
In 1887, Boston Latin played English High School in the first high school Thanksgiving Day football game and now not having high school football is like no stuffing with the turkey. Thousands of games will be played in the early morning as rival match-ups (some over 100 years old) take to the 53 feet, 4-inch field in hopes of winning the biggest game of the season. In 1934, the NFL started their own Thanksgiving tradition when the Detroit Lions’ General Manager, George Richards, used his radio station as a marketing tool to boost his newly franchised team, airing the first Thanksgiving professional football game. Due to the success of the game in the years that followed, the NFL wanted to add another team to host a Thanksgiving game, and in 1966 the Dallas Cowboys took on the job. Today both teams have become a staple of American football on Thanksgiving Day.
