Can You Please Explain Thanksgiving

I know the why and when of Thanksgiving But I am interested to know more So I have some questions I would like to explore: ~ Is Thanksgiving just a one day celebration Or is it ongoing ? ~ Is it a national holiday Do you get days of work? ~ Do you help or give to people in need? ~ Do you celebrate by going on holidays? ~ Are there certain traditions? ~ Is it a religious time? ~ Is there a certain mealtime you celebrate Or whatever suits or you prefer? ~ Are there traditional foods eaten? ~ What are your own special family traditions? That I would like to know! ~ Is there lots of fun and laughter? Or sadness ? ~ Do you give gifts? ~ Are there Thanksgiving cards and decorations? ~ Is there Thanksgiving clothing? ~ Is there Thanksgiving songs you sing? ~ Or is Thanksgiving a personal celebration Just what you want it to be? ~ Being from a country that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving I genuinely have very little idea what it involves For some unknown reason, I think Pecan Pies are part of Thanksgiving ?? Is that right or did I make that one up ? Haha! I ask you these questions As from what I read Thanksgiving means so much to you A very special celebration indeed! “HAPPY THANKSGIVING “!!

Hi! Deb. I enjoyed your poem. In our house it's about giving thanks to God, spending time with your family and friends. We have traditions we do every year. Turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie. We do decorate. It's a National Holiday here in the U.S.A. I hope you can make it part of your life even though it's not a holiday in your country. Blessings ~ Debra

Hi Deb. Yes, Thanksgiving is when we give thanks to The Father for all He has given us. The first Thanksgiving was celebrated to give thanks to The Father for the very fact that they survived their first year thanks to their friends the Natives who kept them from dying of starvation. We celebrate with a turkey or baked ham dinner, pumpkin pies and sweet potato or pecan pies, all sorts of special treats the same as we do at Christmas. God Bless my friend, JB

Thankyou so much for responding Judy I really do appreciate it. I thought it may be a bit like Christmas but really didn’t know. It appears to be a very special occasion and time. Debx

Hey Tom….I do hope so but as of yet NOT! I just see how special it seems to be to people so I’m interested to know more. I wonder if it’s as big as Easter , Christmas etc……hopefully we both will be enlightened indeed! Thanks Tom. Debx
