As in Canada, Thanksgiving in the United States was celebrated on different dates throughout history. The last Thursday of November was the customary date that was followed by most states in the USA. However, in 1863, a presidential proclamation by Abraham Lincoln called for an official Thanksgiving and Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the date of last Thursday in November as the day to celebrate Thanksgiving in a bid to foster a sense of unity among the states of the US. On December 26, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed and passed a joint resolution of Congress which changed the national Thanksgiving Day from last Thursday in November to the fourth Thursday.
Thanksgiving is a day that is celebrated with lots of food and wine. A typical Thanksgiving menu consists of roast turkey, roasted sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, and cranberry juice, winter vegetables like carrots and Brussel sprouts and pumpkin pie with a walnut crust for dessert.
