New England Puritans celebrated their November Thanksgiving as a substitute for Christmas which was forbidden to them. Pa. Gay Dutch celebrated Christmas & had their own Thanksgiving called Harvest Home.
A cultural conflict resulted when New England's Thanksgiving tradition invaded Dutch Pa. For many years, Pennsylvanians looked on Thanksgiving as just another unwanted Yankee trick & they refused to celebrate it.
