A celebratory harvest festival had been part of the fabric of British society since pre-Christian times, when Saxons would come together every autumn to eat supper, fashion symbolic straw dolls and sacrifice sheaves of corn.

In giving thanks for the harvest, the Pilgrims of 1621 were following the cultural norms they were accustomed to when they landed and started the invasion of North America.

May as well attribute George Washington to be behind the idea of night and day with fancy declaration with a "therefore" and a couple of "whereas" and what ever else for the white People of the United States (but only the Anglicans)...
