From all of us at Sip & Savor, we wish you and your family a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
This American holiday commemorates a story of generosity and gratitude to the Wampanoag Indians who helped the Plymouth Pilgrims through a difficult time in 1621. The days of Thanksgiving were initially celebrated by individual colonies and states until President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed in 1863 a national Thanksgiving Day to be held in November. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill to officially make Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday in November.
We hope you enjoy your time with your loved ones, and hope you join in the spirit of giving thanks that inspired this holiday.
