Thanksgiving 2017

"Langmia Junior"

People always ask “What is Thanksgiving?, Why is Thanksgiving celebrated?, and What are the effects of Thanksgiving?”. Some people respond “Thanksgiving is the expression of gratitude to God. It is celebrated to thank God in a special way and its effects are reunion.” while others respond “Thanksgiving is the act of giving thanks, it serves as a grateful acknowledgment of the benefits and favors we have been blessed with and is celebrated to express gratitude towards the things we are thankful for”. Putting these interpretations together gives a clear picture of what Thanksgiving really is.
In North America, Thanksgiving is an annual national holiday marked by a meal including turkey. This holiday is held in the US on the fourth Thursday of every November and usually on the second Monday in October in Canada. Typically, in the US families come together to have dinner and give thanks to everything they are grateful for. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and can give thanks where it is due.
