Thanksgiving as we know it in America originates from the first Pilgrims who settled into Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620 and celebrated with a feast of Thanksgiving to honor the successful autumn harvest of the Mayflower passengers (Pilgrims). However, the autumn harvest was celebrated well before the pilgrims and has its roots in ancient Greece. In fact, the Pilgrims were actually following a tradition that was copied from place to place throughout history and has started in Ancient Greece!
