Why call Thanksgiving? Traced back, Thanksgiving is ancient and American indians, especially with the corn planting has a very close relationship. On September 6, 1620, a group of British Puritan unbearable religious persecution, take the "mayflower" wooden ship bound for America. They are fatigue, hunger, cold and disease under attack for 65 days in the Atlantic, finally arrived in Plymouth colonies in North America.
During the winter, cold climate, loneliness of the field. Local indians generously take out storage winter corn and potatoes, sent to hunt ducks and turkeys. The spring came, indians taught, they grow corn and pumpkin, raise turkeys. White settlers and the indians established a close friendship. For a big corn crop this year autumn, immigrants will held a hearty gratitude, with a roast Turkey and corn pastry treats the indians. The indians with a variety of corn products, roast Turkey and pumpkin pie, wild grapes and corn JiuJiang etc to the party, people sing songs and dances, burning it. Later in the corn harvest after the end of November each year, white immigrants settled in here are going to have a Thanksgiving, every roast Turkey, cooked corn food, hospitality indians. In the long term, this kind of gratitude can become a practice.
Another modern staple at almost every Thanksgiving table is pumpkin pie. But it is unlikely that the first feast included that treat. The supply of flour had been long diminished, so there was no bread or pastries of any kind. However, they did eat boiled pumpkin, and they produced a type of fried bread from their corn crop. There was also no milk, cider, potatoes, or butter. There was no domestic cattle for dairy products, and the newly-discovered potato was still considered by many Europeans to be poisonous. But the feast did include fish, berries, watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, venison, and plums.
