If you haven’t heard yet, today is Thanksgiving in the United States. You know, when the Pilgrims and Native Americans found something in common, the fact that they both liked to eat! That was back in 1621 and it has been celebrated nearly every Thursday 25th since then. No, wait… they forgot about it in the 1700’s and most of the 1800’s but since then it’s been celebrated nearly every November 26th. Well, not so quick… it may not have been officially recognized by Congress until 1941, just before Pearl Harbor was bombed. So really, it’s a pretty new holiday, observing something very old. But we really should be thankful for all our blessings and stuff our faces for at least one day because Lord knows, we don’t often do that!
How to celebrate – Dress up like a Pilgrim or Native American, you choice. Find a really long table to serve your meal on. Seriously, be thankful for what you do have.
Today we celebrate all those things we are thankful for. Family, country, careers, friends… you name it, then be thankful for it. The first Thanksgiving was celebrate in 1621 and went on for three days. Of course, they didn’t have football games to watch back then or it might have lasted longer! It wasn’t until 1941 that Congress set the date for Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November. In the past, it has been celebrate in September or October before finally ending up in November. If you think about it, there really is a lot to be thankful for. We eat, drink and watch out favorite movies (Or football) on Thanksgiving Day, all the company of our loved ones and friends which is what it really is all about. The food is nice, the entertainment good but having our friends and family with us is everything.
How to celebrate – Make this Thanksgiving a special day for all. Know what you are thankful for. Dress up like a Pilgrim, or a Native American, or even a turkey.
