Origins of Thanksgiving Date
In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln announced national Thanksgiving Day to be commended on the last Thursday of November. The standard of pronouncing the last Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day was pursued until 1939. In 1939 President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced the fourth (alongside last) Thursday of November as Thanksgiving rather than the last, fifth one. The difference in Thanksgiving’s date was planned to expand the shopping season before Christmas and help bring the nation out of The Great Depression. In a similar way, Thanksgiving in 1949 and 1941 was commended on third (by last) Thursdays. In December 1941 Thanksgiving date was settled as the fourth Thursday in November.
