‘Home is where the heart is,’ or so the age-old saying goes. Thankful hearts famously gathered together in 1621 to honor the concept of home when English pilgrims and Native American Wampanoag held a harvest festival in Plymouth, Massachusetts. More than 200 years later in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving an American holiday.
