NOVEMBER CONTEST WINNER

Congratulations to Missy Croghan Fountain Hall Court for correctly choosing False to the following question:

True or False: Thanksgiving has always been celebrated on the last Thursday in November.

False

According to Wonderopulous in 1789, President George Washington proclaimed Thursday, November 26, 1789, as the first nationwide "Day of Publick Thanksgivin." In the years that followed, however, the holiday often changed days of the week and even months of the year.

In the mid-19th century, author Sarah Josepha Buell Hale (best known for writing "Mary Had a Little Lamb") began a campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared that the final Thursday of November should be set aside by all states — both North and South — as a day of Thanksgiving.

Finally, on December 26, 1941, President Roosevelt signed a joint resolution of Congress that officially changed Thanksgiving from the last Thursday in November to the fourth Thursday in November. And, thanks to Congress, that's why we still celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November today.
