Thanksgiving Day is a holiday celebrated by many countries and cultures throughout the world as a way to give give thanks for a good harvest in Fall.

Thanksgiving with a dinner
In North America it was originally celebrated by Spanish settlers in the South of what would become the United States based upon European traditions at the end of harvest time. The traditional feast we associate with Thanksgiving began in Canada and the US. Canadian Thanksgiving takes place a month earlier than in the US as winter in Canada comes earlier than its southern neighbor giving the region an earlier crop harvest.
The United States up until the end of the Civil War had no fixed date for the holiday. For over 100 years it was celebrated at different times in virtually every colony or state. For 40 years American Author Sarah Hale wrote letters and published articles lobbying for a National Holiday. In 1863 Abraham Lincoln authorized the first National Thanksgiving in order to promote unity between the people of the North and South. However due to War and the subsequent period of reconstruction it would not be observed as such until the late 1870s with a formal date established in 1941.
Today Thanksgiving is not generally celebrated by large community meals as it was 150-200 years ago and is more recognized as a symbol of families coming together and giving thanks for another year together, their health, and the fruits of their labor. On behalf of the Staff and Developers at War Thunder we would like to give thanks for another year of incredible growth not only for the game but for our amazing player community as well. Whether you are with family, friends, or hanging out with your squaddies and playing War Thunder today. We wish you a sincerely Happy Thanksgiving, and look forward to another year together and the blessings that may come.
