Good guess, @BettyS487482. I would have guessed the 1930's also. However, it was a few years earlier--1924. 

 

And our last Thanksgiving week trivia question: 

How was the celebration date for Thanksgiving chosen?

Hi Vicki, I'm going to guess, and it's merely a guess, but I'll say the first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was 1938.  I remember seeing James Stewart and Natalie Wood in "It's a Wonderful Life," and remember the Santa at Macy's in the movie.  Gee, that's been soooo many years ago.

I thought from my childhood that Thanksgiving was celebrated in the United States because of our gratitude for a bountiful harvest.  After reading the comments regarding the dates for the first Thanksgiving, I read in Wikipedia that America celebrated initialing in 1789 by order of President George Washington and then in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln when he made it a federal holiday.  And, then Pres. FDR changed the date around 1942 when we celebrated the 4th Thursday in November.  Thanks AARP-- Just goes to show I'm never too old to learn!

Amazing! But I believe we didn't start celebrating it until the 1800s? Was is Sarah Jespha Hale who campaigned to make it a holiday? Or maybe she started Mother's Day haha
