2. What did people eat during Thanksgiving?
Only few of us know that there was no turkey on the first day of the celebration. The first time when people celebrated Thanksgiving was in 1621. The holiday lasted for three days. Everybody wanted to express their gratitude for the harvest – tribes, settles from other countries and pilgrims ate absolutely different foods from those we have nowadays on this day. As a rule, their meals consisted of shellfish, corn and deer meat. And turkey was not part of their menu.
