Mensagem:  Thanksgiving in the US has been celebrated at different times since the Pilgrim days. It's based on the same northern european harvest festival as Canada's, and certainly the early settlers would have made the celebration sometime in October. The current US time, in late November, was set - I believe - by president Roosevelt in the 1940's.
