Thanksgiving 2023 Date

Thanksgiving is observed on November 23, 2023, although the exact date varies every year; it always falls on the fourth Thursday of the month.That has been the law ever since President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill making it official in 1941, over two years after he initially made the decision to slightly alter American custom in the sake of promoting the economy and Christmas shopping—and upsetting some people in the process.

Why does Thanksgiving fall on the fourth Thursday of November?

Although the oldest Thanksgiving narrative dates back to 1621, it wasn’t until President Abraham Lincoln’s administration that the holiday was observed annually in the United States. He established Thanksgiving as a national holiday in 1863, to be observed on the final Thursday of November, with the intention of uniting Americans during the height of the Civil War. For magazine editor Sarah Josepha Hale, who is known as the “mother of Thanksgiving,” this was the moment when her decades-long support of the holiday came to an end.

But in 1939, November began on a Wednesday, which meant that instead of four Thursdays, there would be five, and Thanksgiving would fall on the thirty-first. Naturally, this has happened previously, but President Franklin D. Roosevelt determined that it was too late this time. He declared in August of that year that the national holiday would now fall on the second-to-last Thursday of August.

The change was deemed permanent the following year (1940), with Thanksgiving Day being officially observed on November 21, the second-to-last Thursday. Roosevelt is said to have acknowledged in 1941 that the switch was a mistake, but it was too late to reverse it because the calendars had already been made. The national Thanksgiving holiday fell on the third Thursday of the month in 1940 and 1941 since November had only four Thursdays in those years.

Roosevelt passed legislation at the close of 1941 designating Thanksgiving Day as the fourth Thursday of November, regardless of whether it is the final or second-to-last Thursday of the month.

Thanksgiving Celebrations

People celebrate Thanksgiving for a variety of reasons these days. Some people still use it as an opportunity to give thanks to a higher power, for the harvest, or for their family; others use it as a chance to spend time together as a family, whether that family is there in person or digitally, over a special meal.

With over 90% of Americans eating turkey on Thanksgiving, a plentiful feast has evolved into the customary Thanksgiving cuisine. However, did you realise that turkey wasn’t always a common food? An eight- to ten-pound fowl would have cost a day’s wages in the 1830s!

Turkeys are still a festive symbol of abundance even if they are considerably more reasonably priced these days. Actually, the first food Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin had on the moon was roast turkey wrapped in foil. Do you suppose they had cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes?

It’s possible that the Pilgrims didn’t serve turkey at the first feast they gave in 1621.

In the US, helping the less fortunate by offering food or time to homeless shelters or others in need is another popular Thanksgiving custom. Communities occasionally organise parades or “turkey trot” runs. Additionally, a few US governors and the president of the United States frequently “pardon” one or two Thanksgiving turkeys every year.
