Thanksgiving is a time for families to get together and share what they are thankful for. Celebrities are no different, with famous faces from coast to coast celebrating one of America's most beloved holidays.
Celebrities used social media to wish their friends, families and fans a happy Thanksgiving. The holiday is celebrated annually on the third Thursday of November, giving us an opportunity to fill our stomachs before rushing to stores on Black Friday.
The Thanksgiving holiday is associated with the Pilgrims, who arrived at Plymouth in 1620. In 1621, they celebrated their first successful harvest after the Wampanoag tribe taught them how to farm.
The Thanksgiving holiday has been an American tradition since the Revolutionary War period. During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln declared a national Thanksgiving Day for November. Since 1942, the holiday has been celebrated on the third Thursday of November.
Here's a look at how celebrities across the country celebrated the holiday.

My favorite holiday by far because I get to reflect about what I love about my life. Usually, I focus on what needs to be BETTER! Ahh....but God has blessed me to fear vulnerability but still have the courage to seek it. Understanding that my heart, my truth, my authenticity is my greatest asset. AND my flaws, my mistakes are to be forgiven....with grace....God's grace...daily. Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours...with LOVE ❤❤❤
