Thanksgiving is sort of a harvest festival. It was initiated as a day of thanks for bounty and indeed, just gratitude that one survived another year in a new and wild land. It wasn't celebrated nationaly here untill after the civil was when the national holliday was declared. Before that, each state set it for their own.
