After the first Thanksgiving celebration in Plymouth, other colonies began to hold days of prayer and thanks. The Massachusetts Bay Colony, located around the present-day cities of Salem and Boston, celebrated its first Thanksgiving in 1630, and in 1777, all 13 colonies observed a day of Thanksgiving on Dec. 18.
