The New Mexican Hispanic Culture Preservation League annually celebrates the first Thanksgiving ever held in the present United States. The Spanish gave thanks for reaching a new homeland just before crossing over to settle what is now New Mexico, Arizona, Eastern California, Southern Nevada, Western Texas, Western Oklahoma and Southwestern Kansas.

For most people, enjoying turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin for Thanksgiving is as traditional and American as, well, apple pie. But how did the Pilgrims really celebrate on what we now regard as the first Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1621? Is our celebration—and traditional menu—truly akin to that enjoyed by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag Indian guests? Source.

No comments by me. Just a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
