Let's jump into the history of Thanksgiving and some of our top flowers and treats from our flower shop in Charlotte, NC.
There were multiple reasons why Thanksgiving has become what it is today. We have to go back in time to find out why! Before Europeans settled in North America, the Native people of North America always said thanks for their blessings by celebrating with ceremonies. Europeans started making their way to the New World on the Mayflower. During their journey and arrival, many pilgrims were starved and ill. Luckily, a Native American, Squanto helped the Pilgrims prepare and nurture corn, withdraw sap from trees, hunt fish, and more. In November 1621, the pilgrims successfully harvested corn. To celebrate, the Pilgrims and their Native American associates had a feast that lasted three days. There was another Thanksgiving held by the Pilgrims in 1623, after a drought. Throughout time, Thanksgiving was more prominent and celebrated for various reasons. In today's society, Thanksgiving may not be celebrated in a religious way. This holiday has become a gathering of family or friends to say thanks and of course eat! To learn more about Thanksgiving’s history, here is a Youtube video linked below.
