Thanksgiving Day: The fourth Thursday of November each year.
There is no fixed date for the initial Thanksgiving. In 1941, the US Congress officially designated the fourth Thursday of November each year as “Thanksgiving Day.” Thanksgiving holidays generally last from Thursday to Sunday. The origin of Thanksgiving must be traced back to the origins of the history of the entire nation of the United States, as well as to the history of the Puritans.
In the West, Thanksgiving is second only to Christmas. This is a day of gratitude. People go to the church as a custom to worship, thank God for their compassion and infinite grace. This is a reunion day, where people from all over the world come together to enjoy turkeys, each sharing a gratifying testimony of the year.
Because people are not isolated, we all have support and care from family, friends, and colleagues. Expressing gratitude to the people around you in a timely manner, our world will also become warmer.
