The Old Testament refers to many harvest festivals. Centuries before the people of the Nile learned to measure a year, they gave annual thanks for the grain crops that would carry them through the hard months ahead, the National Geographic Society says. The ancient Greeks honored Demeter. goddess of growing things. The ceremonies were so important that warring states called a truce to observe them. The Romans carried on the tradition by saluting Ceres, the grain goddess. The word "cereal" recalls the deity. Plebeians sacrificed a sow to begin the holiday and continued with processions, dancing, and sports. In the New World, many Indians regularly practiced thanksgiving rituals. The Iroquois of New York State, for instance, still ceremonially give thanks for "blessings provided by the Creator for the enjoyment and well-being of mankind." The Pilgrims remembered the harvest-home festivals of England and set a pattern for Thanksgiving in the United States as a day of worship, feasting, and family reunions.
