My Mother told me that Thanksgiving was an "American Holiday". She said; it was not an immigrants holiday. Her Parents didn't arrive in America until the 1900's and on my Father's side, about 1880, NYC. When she was a kid, they used to go trick or treating on Thanksgiving!

Castle Garden From August 1, 1855 through April 18, 1890, immigrants arriving in the state of New York came through Castle Garden. America's first official immigrant examining and processing center, Castle Garden welcomed approximately 8 million immigrants - most from Germany, Ireland, England, Scotland, Sweden, Italy, Russia and Denmark.

Castle Clinton or Fort Clinton was once a circular sandstone fort now located in Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, New York City, in the United States. It subsequently became a beer garden, an exhibition hall, a theater, the first immigration station (predating Ellis Island), a very popular public aquarium, and finally a national monument. wikipedia Genealogy

Ellis Island The Historical Gateway For Millions Of Immigrants To The United States. The Statue of Liberty National Monument and the Ellis Island Immigration Museum are a popular tour activity for visitors to New York City.

I wonder if immigrants nowadays, consider Thanksgiving a holiday?
