It was in 1C21, the fall following
the landing at Plymouth, that the Pil

And so it was that the first day of
organized thanksgiving was set. The

From the Pilgrim colony, the custom'
ipread to others in the Xew Englandj
states. In 1630 the Massachusetts Bay
colony set aside a day for thanksgiv
ing, and frequently thereafter, until
16S0, when it became an annual festl-j
ral in the colony.
Connecticut appointed . a day ln
1639, and annually after 1647, except:
in 1C75. The Dutch in Xew Xether
ands set aside a day in 1644 and oc
fasionally thereafter. During the War
f Independence the Continental con
gress appointed one or more thanks
giving days each year, except In U77.:
President Washington set aside Thurs
day. Xov. 20, 1789, as a day-ofna-'
tonal thanks, and again in 1795 he'
called the country together for such,
a celebration. President Madison, at'
the close of the War of 1812, appointed
a day. .
In Xew.. York state, from 18X7 on,
the festival was annual.

snowfall of the season., generally
scheduled for the last week in Novem
