Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness... it's an occasion to be spent in the warm and loving company of family, loved ones and friends enjoying turkey roast and pumpkin pies with them. Thanksgiving is also an opportunity to renew the ties that bind us with the ones we love... it is a time for remembering, cherishing and being thankful for all the good things you have been blessed with. So it's time to say 'Happy Thanksgiving'

Thanksgiving Games

Send This As Ecard

The biggest Thanksgiving tradition and the most cherished game of the holiday is the Thanksgiving football. And it’s more than impossible to think of today’s Thanksgiving without the football games held all over America.
In a way, Thanksgiving has become synonymous with football. Antiquity has instances where harvest festivals were celebrated with games and sports. But Thanksgiving Day football is a very recent invention. It came into popular practice only in the 20th century. The traditional football game of Thanksgiving Day was usually held between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. But now, the Thanksgiving Day is not just confined to football—it’s jam-packed with actions and numerous other games that are sure to keep your adrenalin running high all day through ! History has it that it started in 1876, the year the Intercollegiate Football Association was set up. The championship game of this association was held on the Thanksgiving Day. And by another decade or two, Thanksgiving holiday was announced to be the official day for watching football games.
Numerous such football games were held all over America and reaped huge amounts after each Thanksgiving game of football every year. Evidently, the sportsmen earned huge revenue from this traditional Thanksgiving game—football. In the past decades, watching the Detroit Lions play the Green Bay Packers has become so much a part of the Thanksgiving tradition that all activities came to a halt till the game was over.
