Today we celebrate all those things we are thankful for, though we often seem to forget them during the course of the day. The first Thanksgiving came in 1621 but it was all but forgotten until 1789 when George Washington proclaimed it as a holiday. The original Thanksgiving lasted 3 days, Washington’s was 1. Abraham Lincoln made the last Thursday in November the constant date to celebrate Thanksgiving and FDR made it a National Holidays. So Thanksgiving has moved around, been forgotten and adjusted to meet Federal Holidays but is is still around, still a holiday and still a reason to give thanks for all we have.
How to celebrate – Enjoy your family on Thanksgiving.Invite good friends for your feast. Remember to always be thankful for all you receive.
