4. How did football become the main entertainment on Thanksgiving Day?
We now know that the major event of this celebration is football. On Thanksgiving there is hardly any other entertainment that would be watched by so many people at the same time. This tradition started in 1934. The match was arranged between the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions. The former team was then the world’s champion. In general, the game was a great success. Since then people in the United States have watched the game during Thanksgiving. There were no football matches between 1939 and 1944 due to the Second World War.
