Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving Day

"The First Thanksgiving"

The First Thanksgiving

Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States.

I don’t think most people from other countries understand just how important this holiday is to those of us who live here.

The holiday goes back to Colonial Days when the early pilgrims gave thanks for their crops and it has evolved over the years into a major national celebration to be shared with family and friends.

People will brave horrible traffic, delayed flights and every conceivable inconvenience to gather with their families on this special day to give thanks. Most of us will eat turkey, a tradition, just like our forefathers did.

We have so much to be thankful for when you consider that millions of people around the world go to bed hungry every night.

I personally want to thank my loyal readers and my many friends in my web “family” for your support. My best wishes to you and your loved ones.

Happy Thanksgiving!
