The theme and cause for the celebration on Thanksgiving is one that goes far back in time. It was never a Sabbat that involved heavy praying, but rather a celebration of the abundance of earth represented by a table loaded with food and wine for everyone.
Thanksgiving was traditionally known as Mabon. Mabon, over time, became the Harvest Home feast that Pilgrims celebrated in September as a part of or in association with the autumnal equinox (first day of fall as marked by the suns position).
It wasn’t until Abraham Lincoln took office as Untied States President, that the Harvest Home feast was transferred to Thanksgiving and celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in the United States on November 26, 1863.
All of us here at Nooz Buffet would like to wish all of our friends a happy and plentiful Thanksgiving. Thank you!
