Traditional Thanksgiving pictures often feature cornucopias filled with the fall harvest bounty. The cornucopia, also called a horn of plenty, is an ancient symbol of prosperity. Overflowing with fruit, vegetables, Indian corn, gourds, flowers, nuts and berries, it represents abundance.

Americans use this image in Thanksgiving pictures to represent the overflowing blessings to be grateful for during the harvest season.

Thanksgiving Roasted Turkey Pictures

One common theme for Thanksgiving images is the roasted turkey served on a platter. Eating turkey for the holiday meal is a tradition carried over from the very first Thanksgiving meal, when the Pilgrims and Indians shot wild turkeys for the banquet.

Because it takes many hours to roast a turkey, it is presented with the hostess's pride of accomplishment.

At the holiday dinner table, the turkey is the main attraction.

Thanksgiving Pictures of Pumpkin Pies

The dessert menu for the traditional holiday feast includes pumpkin pie. Pumpkins are harvested in the fall and these large colorful vegetables provide cooks with ample ingredients for many family recipes. But the pumpkin pie is the all-time favorite and this is why it is featured in so many Thanksgiving pictures and images.

Pumpkins were served at the first Thanksgiving meal, but the Pilgrims didn't have wheat flour or sugar so there were no pies. Instead, they made pumpkin puddings sweetened with molasses and honey.

Berkeley Hundred, Virginia

Berkeley Hundred, Virginia

First Thanksgiving

The first American Thanksgiving was held on December 4, 1619, in Berkeley Hundred (Berkeley Plantation), Virginia. Thirty-eight English pilgrims arrived in America after a ten-week voyage under the leadership of Captain John Woodleaf.

The little English colony proclaimed in its charter that the day of the arrival on American soil would be remembered and celebrated every year as "a day of thanksgiving to God." The charter declared:

"We ordaine that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned for plantacon in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God."

In the first Thanksgiving picture below, Captain John Woodleaf is conducting the prayers at the first Thanksgiving service. This very first Thanksgiving was not a festive meal; that came later with the arrival of another passenger ship of American settlers.

Plimoth Plantation

Plimoth Plantation

The traditional American Thanksgiving holiday feast is traced to the arrival of the Mayflower ship, which docked off Provincetown, Massachusetts, on November 11, 1620. The 102 English settlers aboard chose explorers to go ashore and locate a settlement site.

The Mayflower sailed southward and landed at a harbor about 40 miles south of present day Boston. It was here that the passengers and crew lived on board the Mayflfower during the winter of 1620. In the spring of 1621, the pilgrims established their permanent settlement and named it Plimoth. Plimoth became the Plimoth Plantation and is today known as Plymouth.

Indian Chief Squanto Teaching Pilgrims How to Plant Corn Crops

The Plimoth Colony reaped a bountiful harvest during the first year of planting in 1621, and held a feast to give thanks to God. The three-day event was attended by members of the neighboring Wampanoag Indian tribe, who had provided substantial assistance to the pilgrims.

At the Plimoth Colony's first Thanksgiving, the custom was established to thank others for their assistance, in addition to thanking God Almighty.

Wild turkey and venison are mentioned as part of this first Thanksgiving Day menu. There was no wheat in the new land, so pies were not made; but there were ample pumpkins and fruits for sweet puddings. Corn, cultivated for generations by the local inhabitants, was an ingredient of many dishes. Perhaps cornbread stuffing, found in so many Thanksgiving images, originated from this first Thanksgiving feast.

The pilgrims learned how to plant corn from the Native Americans, and corn became a major source of their sustenance. Sweet corn and Indian corn are common images in Thanksgiving pictures.

Samoset, one of the chiefs of the Wampanoag Indian Tribe, made contact with the Plimoth pilgrims in the spring of 1621. He arrived alone at the settlement and was stark naked except for a leather belt around his waist which held his bow and arrows.

To the surprise of the settlers, he spoke the English language. Samoset was instrumental in helping the pilgrims adapt to their new country.

"Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens."

It has been celebrated in America as a national holiday ever since. It is one of the most beloved holidays.

Turkey Pictures

Because roasted turkey is the centerpiece of the traditional Thanksgiving Day meal, turkeys are often portrayed in Thanksgiving images.

The favorite picture is of a large male turkey with feathers displayed in a picturesque courting posture.

The gobbler raises his tail feathers high and lifts the back feathers behind his head. He prominently displays a feathered beard protruding from his chest.

These turkey pictures feature the birds in all their grandeur. Find your favorite picture of a turkey here.

Funny Thanksgiving Pictures

Funny Thanksgiving pictures usually have something to do with turkeys. After all, the holiday is called "Turkey Day."

Turkeys are well known for their lack of intelligence and are often the butt of jokes. As beautiful as the birds are, to call someone a turkey is not a compliment!

With all of the preparations necessary for Thanksgiving Day, funny pictures provide a little comic relief from the work.

Many of the funny Thanksgiving pictures show a turkey dodging his fate. In keeping with this humorous thought, U.S. presidents have actually created a ceremony whereby they grant a pardon to a turkey every year.

That ceremony provides a great photo opp for funny Thanksgiving pictures.

Thanksgiving Prayer

Since the first formal Thanksgiving service in the New World in 1619, prayer has been part of this American holiday.

Thanksgiving prayers and blessings provide food for thought to accompany the traditional meal.

As much as America would like to separate church from state, prayer is a continual part of this holiday which began as a holy day of giving thanks to God.

Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash

American country singer and icon, Johnny Cash (1932-2003), created memorable Thanksgiving prayers in poetry and song.

Two all-time favorites are captured in the videos below. Transcripts are presented underneath each video.

At the heart of these prayers is a Thanksgiving image of gratitude for the simple things in life and for the people we love.

Thanksgiving Prayer

The Meal

The Meal

Prayer of Thanksgiving

"Thanksgiving is a day that we are reminded to be thankful for the things that we've got. Though it may seem like little, sometimes, we've always got something to be thankful for. I'd like to tell you the story about a man who I think has a lot to be thankful for."

On Thanksgiving, I Thank You

Lyrics by Johnny Cash

On Thanksgiving Day a family sat down to have their meal.

There was very little on the table, a few things from the field.

No turkey or fancy dressing – some bread and a little beans –

For the crops had been a failure and the times were pretty lean.


The father bowed his head; it was their habit to say grace.

And a calmness came over his lined and wrinkled face.

Dear Lord, he said, we thank You, for the sun was warm today

And we thank you for the singing of the birds and the laughing of the children as they played.


And thank You for that neighbor of mine that fixed my plow.

Thank you for that old plow horse. (We sure could use a cow.)

Thank you for the muscle; I can stand the ache.

Just let me have Your blessing on all I undertake.


And I thank You for this country, too, O' we've troubles now and pain,

But with Your help Lord, we'll get back to where the road is smooth again.

Thanks for all the love we've got and the strength to work my land.

For there's nothing Lord that I can't do if You lend a helping hand.


Thank You for my good wife, Lord, the children that I've got.

And they love me for the things that I am, and they forget the things I'm not.

And if somebody's down and out, Lord, and they're praying You with heed,

Just send them over to see me, Lord, I got more than I need.


Today I worked so hard my feet was aching;

I never stopped griping about the little bit of money I was making.

On my way home I passed a man and he was smiling,

And he was crippled. Lord, forgive me when I whine.

The world is mine and I'm doing fine.


I just want to say I thank You for the food I eat,

And I thank You, Lord, for the place I sleep,

And I thank You for my coat that keeps me warm.

Yes, and my feet that take me where I want to go

And my eyes that see the sunset's glow

And my ears that hear what they would know.


I thank you Lord the world is mine and I'm doing fine.

Yes the world is mine and I'm doing fine.


But some folks never seem to get happy.

Is it just because that they're so busy getting mad?

Never taking time to be thankful or lend a helping hand to a fellow man

Although his heart is filled with hate and his mind is planted on the second's sound.


I just want to say I thank You for the food I eat

And I thank You for the place I sleep

And I thank You, Lord, for the coat that keeps me warm.

Yes, and my feet that take me where I want to go,

And my eyes that see Your sunset's glow,

And my ears that hear what they would know.


I thank You, Lord, the world is mine and I'm doing fine.

Just want to tell You that the world is mine, Lord,

And I thank You now and I'm doing fine.

Indians Clip Art

Indians are central to the story of the first Thanksgiving meal and are often portrayed in Thanksgiving clip art.

Images of the Indian Chief Squanto are often seen because he was the one who taught the pilgrims how to grow corn and how to fertilize the plants by planting them with a dead fish. In fact, without his help, the early pilgrims might not have survived their first year in the New World.

Part of the first Thanksgiving feast was to thank the Indians for their assistance.

Mary Craig from New York on October 14, 2014:

I can't even imagine how long it took you to put this together but I know there will be a gathering of folks looking at this wonderful collection of free pictures and images! I like how you interspersed the Thanksgiving information in between.

Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting, and shared.

Writer Fox (author) from the wadi near the little river on August 30, 2014:

I love that prayer, too, Mariana. To hear Johnny Cash sing it is heart-breaking. I'm so glad that you find it hear and that you took the time to leave a comment. Bless you!

Mariana Mill on August 29, 2014:

I think all in all the very best was Johnny Cash's song/printed lyrics also, that touched my heart and moved me so. We need to be reminded "everyday" of all that we have to be thankful for. I, as others, forget that we have our senses, sight, hearing etc, which we take for granted. Thank you for sharing this. I will be sending this out to all my friends.

Writer Fox (author) from the wadi near the little river on December 10, 2013:

Thank you Pstraubie for comment. This is my personal collection that I use every year to send Thanksgiving greetings and I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on December 10, 2013:

Great collection....you must have spent hours mulling over just the right one to share.

I do so enjoy photos that have captured just the feeling of such a special time of the year.

Thank you, Tillsontitan. Yes, it was time consuming to upload this collection of Thanksgiving pictures and images, but well worth the effort. So many, many people have found this on the Internet for the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving today!

Mary Craig from New York on November 15, 2013:

What an amazing compilation! I can't imagine how long it took you to put all of this together!!

Next add all the information you've added. So glad the Pilgrims "kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God." Not to mention Abraham Lincoln making it an official day of Thanksgiving.

God bless them, and you. Have a great weekend.

Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

Writer Fox (author) from the wadi near the little river on November 15, 2013:

Hi Au Fait. The coloring pages are great to keep the kids entertained on Thanksgiving Day while the turkey is cooking. I'll look for your board on Pinterest. Thank you so much for your comment and the share.

C E Clark from North Texas on November 15, 2013:

Wow! So many great photos, and even some images that could be printed out and used for children to color, or for craft projects!

If you are sending an image to someone to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving, you don't need to credit it at all. If you want to use it on a website, send me an email and tell which one you want to use and where it will be used.

Tasty collection of images.. should we credit this hub and you as a source if we use one (some)?

I thought t was interesting that the Google ads show containers for leftovers.

Thank you, DDE. These images represent the holiday in every way.

Wow: Do you still have a computer that can read a floppy disk? The images available now are so much better. I love technology.
