For a first-hand description of thanksgiving days held in Boston and Salem in the 1630s and 1640s, read it in Mary Dyer Illuminated, by Christy K Robinson. It's Volume I of the two-part story of William and Mary Dyer. The Dyers series, which has won almost unanimous five-star reviews, is available in paperback and Kindle at online booksellers like Amazon.
Be sure to order the series for yourself, and as gifts for friends and family members.
