There were 3 days of Thanksgiving
Should we celebrate the three?
We must celebrate Thanksgiving. Recognize and appreciate all that we have. Because everything we most love and have we can lose in 1 second.

Do you agree with this? They are historical facts. It is a matter of searching and checking!

Third Thanksgiving (1621):
Pilgrims and Puritans who emigrated from England in the 1620s and 1630s carried the tradition of Days of Fasting and Days of Thanksgiving with them to New England. The modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is traced to a well-recorded 1619 event in Virginia and a sparsely documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. The 1619 arrival of 38 English settlers at Berkeley Hundred in Charles City County, Virginia, concluded with a religious celebration as dictated by the group’s charter from the London Company, which specifically required “that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned … in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God.” The 1621 Plymouth feast and thanksgiving was prompted by a good harvest, ..
All three were religious and peace celebrations
