Thanksgiving is a National Holiday in the United States, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of NOV.
  President Washington started the idea of a national day to be "Give Thanks." 
President Abraham Lincoln, made Thanksgiving a federal holiday in 1863, during the American Civil War. Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November. Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the date was changed to the fourth Thursday in November, an innovation that endures to this day. Together with Christmas and the New Year, Thanksgiving is a part of the broader fall/winter holiday season in the U.S.
