Thanksgiving Day with Fulbrighters and Ambassador G. Pyatt

Thanksgiving is a wonderful American tradition during which we give thanks and pray to the Almighty for His Benevolence. It was first celebrated in 1621 in Plymouth Massachusetts when the Pilgrims wanted to express their gratitude to God for surviving their treacherous journey across the Atlantic Ocean and for a bountiful harvest which would allow them to survive the winter in their New Land. That first Thanksgiving they also welcomed the Indians at their table in gratitude for the help they had provided.

The Fulbright office in Ukraine also has a tradition of bringing together family and friends – old and new—around a Thanksgiving table.
