Eight forty nine Stephen Ted on K NSS, Connecticut was the first state that made thanksgiving an annual event just for ordinary yearly doing this over the phone. Thank you to Connecticut. Yeah. For doing that. But before it became standard. Thanksgiving's were occasional a formalized. Thanks, George Washington. Basically kind of started the ball rolling on some of that he made a proclamation in the year seventeen Eighty-nine recommending that the state's car out Thursday, November twenty sixth as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer congress met for the first time that year. So they implemented reminding the constitution setting up the government, and how that would work and all that. Then the proclamation framed thanksgiving is a time for all their blessings in getting this new country started. And so they started doing that in seventeen eighty nine that was a one time only deal seventeen Eighty-nine giving thanks for the country starting after that some state governors kept that tradition declared a day of thanksgiving whenever it so happened in those states, but it was never a it was not a formalized date. But then came along the eighteen hundreds and one woman, Sarah Josefa hail started a letter writing campaign. She wanted the last Thursday of November designated at a national day of thanksgiving.

Finally, it got standardized like we know it in nineteen thirty nine when FDR began moving thanksgiving from the last Thursdays of the month. And he kinda put it to the next to last Thursday which enabled a bigger shopping period between thanksgiving and Christmas. And now we've said we settled on the fourth Thursday of thanksgiving of November is thanksgiving now, and we all know it is Turkey day. And that's where we've been since the thirties as God as my witness. I thought turkeys could fly. Yeah. That was forty years ago that hard to believe.
