Thanksgiving family photos & traditions

In the United States, the tradition of Thanksgiving is traced back to the early 1600's and a celebration with Native Americans. Around the world, however, there has been a tradition for centuries of celebrating the blessings of a good harvest. Good & plentiful food, friends and family are the only requirements for a good Thanksgiving.

Sometimes, however, not only food and love are the hallmarks of a great Thanksgiving. Look through these old photos and see if you can recognize some of these Thanksgiving traditions!
