On November twenty-sixth, nineteen forty-one, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill into law that said the fourth Thurday in November would be Thanksgiving every year from then on. Two years prior, Roosevelt made a mistake and signed something that broke tradition, and Thanksgiving would be on November twenty-third. He later admitted to his mistake.
