However, the great historian Michael Gannon disagrees with this fact believing that the first Thanksgiving in North America took place almost a half-century earlier.

When Thanksgiving becomes the national public holiday?

According to the US archives on 28 September 1789, the federal congress passed the resolution asking the president of America to recommend to the nation a day of thanksgiving. A few days after the resolution passed, George Washington issued the proclamation naming Thursday 26 November 1789 as Thanksgiving Day.

However, the dates of the thanksgiving varied as presidents came and go and it wasn’t until Abraham Lincoln became the president of the United States in 1863. He issued a proclamation that stated Thanksgiving should be celebrated each year on the last Thursday of November.

Why did the date of Thanksgiving change?

As per the US archives in 1938 thanksgiving was falling on the last day of the month, which made President Franklin D Roosevelt worried that it will shorten the Christmas shopping season which will directly dampen the economic recovery. Hence, he issued the proclamation moving the thanksgiving to the second Thursday from the last Thursday of November.

32 states agreed and issued the same proclamation but the other 16 states refused to accept it. As a result, for a continuous 2 years, Thanksgiving was celebrated on two different days.

Finally, the confusion was ended by congress on 6 October 1941. They set the last Thursday as the legal day for Thanksgiving Day.

The History behind the Halloween

You all know that each year Halloween is celebrated on the last day of the October which is 31st, but there is one thing you don’t know; the word ‘Halloween’ was derived from ‘hallowed evening’ and in the early European celebrations, it was named as ‘hallows’ eve’. As time changed they shortened this name to ‘Halloween’.

What is the belief behind the Halloween?

The reason why Halloween is celebrated on October 31 is because of the festival “Samhain” which is also linked to the earliest roots of the festival. The day was marked as a pivotal time season begins to change, but apart from that ancient people believed that it is the time when the boundary between the human world and the spiritual world gets blurred, enabling spirits to enter into our world. The same belief is shared by many cultures in the different parts of the world. This is where Halloween got its “haunted” connotations you see today!

Popular rituals of Halloween

Costume making

The festival of Halloween is directly linked to the Celts who lived around 2000 years ago. That time, the “Samhain” (Halloween in the 7th century) used to have so many rituals related to spirits. While there is no clear record of these rituals, many believe that Celts used to celebrate the festival wearing costumes made from skins of the animals as a disguise against real ghosts, enjoy heavy feasts and hang lanterns out. With time, most of these rituals disappeared and those that remained evolved and modernized.

The mythical rituals took the shape of more lightening and fun activities. For example; the concepts of disguising as ghosts became the fun activity where people started to dress up as their favorite characters.

Mirror gazing
