Image: Thank You, Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving, by Laurie Halse Anderson (Author), Matt Faulkner (Illustrator). Publisher: Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers; Reprint edition (October 1, 2005)Thanksgiving Day (US)
-- A harvest festival celebrated today in the United States (in Canada in October). Traditionally, it has been a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. While it may have been religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now primarily identified as a secular holiday.

Read: Thank You, Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving
-- Thanksgiving might have started with a jubilant feast on Plymouth's shore. But by the 1800s America's observance was waning. None of the presidents nor Congress sought to revive the holiday. And so one invincible lady editor name Sarah Hale took it upon herself to rewrite the recipe for Thanksgiving as we know it today. This is an inspirational, historical, all-out boisterous tale about perseverance and belief: In 1863 Hale's thirty-five years of petitioning and orations got Abraham Lincoln thinking. He signed the Thanksgiving Proclamation that very year, declaring it a national holiday. This story is a tribute to Hale, her fellow campaigners, and to the amendable government affording citizens the power to make the world a better place!

America's Thanksgiving Day Parade (1924)
- One of Michigan's largest events, the parade has been a beloved Thanksgiving tradition since 1924. The streets of downtown Detroit come alive with bands, floats and more for all ages. Est attendance: 1,000,000.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
- A part of everyone's Thanksgiving, the parade grows bigger and better each year. Featuring floats, giant balloons, marching bands, and famous stars, the parade is televised for the whole country.

Kennedy was assassinated (1963)
- President John F. Kennedy was slain by a sniper while riding in an open automobile at Dallas, TX on November 22, 1963. Accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby while in police custody awaiting trial.

Stop the Violence Day
- The crux of the idea was if we can learn to stop the violence for one day, maybe we could do it every day, one day at a time. November 22nd was chosen as Stop the Violence Day, marking not only the anniversary of the Kennedy assassination but in 1990 (and 2007), also falling on Thanksgiving.

National Cranberry Relish Day
- How do you like your cranberry sauce — whole berry or quivering jelly?

Humane Society Anniversary Day (1954)
- When the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) was founded in 1954, by a handful of dedicated visionaries, the modern concept of animal welfare barely existed. A half-century later, the HSUS has become the nation's largest animal protection organization, with a constituency of millions, and a leader in the parallel rise of the modern animal welfare movement. The HSUS mission is celebrating animals and confronting cruelty.

Beauty and the Beast Birthday (1991)
- A 1991 American animated musical film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation. The story is based on the fairy tale La Belle et la BΓͺte by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont and uses some ideas from the 1946 film of the same name. It centers around a prince who is transformed into a Beast and a young woman named Belle whom he imprisons in his castle. To become a prince again, the Beast must love Belle and win her love in return.

Alice's Restaurant Day (1965)
- One of singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie's most prominent works, a musical monologue based on a true story which began on Thanksgiving Day 1965, and which inspired a 1969 movie of the same name. In an interview for All Things Considered, Guthrie said the song points out any American citizen who was convicted of a crime, no matter how minor (in his case, it was littering), could avoid being conscripted to fight in the Vietnam War.

Toy Story Birthday (1995)
- A 1995 American computer-animated film, the first Disney/Pixar film to be made, as well as the first feature film to be made entirely with CGI. Toy Story follows a group of toys who pretend to be lifeless whenever humans are present, and focuses on Woody, a pull-string cowboy doll (Tom Hanks), and Buzz Lightyear, an astronaut action figure (Tim Allen).

Start Your Own Country Day (1939)
- originally conceived in 1939 at the World's Fair in New York. Its conception was to honor those free-spirited souls who dared to hope and believe in a better world where they too could declare any land their own.

Go For A Ride Day
- As the holidays approach, life becomes chaotic, and perhaps a bit stressful. Take a breather, and go for a relaxing ride. You don't need a destination to enjoy this day. The means of transportation can be anything - car, bus, or motorcycle ride may immediately come to mind. But be more creative - how will you take a ride?
