In 1817 New York State adopted Thanksgiving Day as an annual custom, and by the middle of the 19th century many other states had done the same. In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln appointed a day of thanksgiving as the last Thursday in November.
To all my ActiveRain friends and blogging buddies wishing you and yours a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving.
If you're on the Upper West Side for Thanksgiving check out The Macy's Thanksgiving day parade along Central Park West.
Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy!
