Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving FeastFor many families, Thanksgiving Day – which this year falls on Thursday, November 22nd – marks the beginning of the holiday season. It is a beautiful holiday that encourages us to count our blessings, just as our Pilgrim forefathers did throughout Thanksgiving history.

As Thanksgiving approaches, there are reminders everywhere of the abundance of the things that truly matter: loving families, good friends, plentiful food and the simple joys of nature. As the spirit of the season spreads this timely message, it also offers a gentle reminder that there are others less generously blessed.

  1. It appears the ‘history of Thanksgiving’ link is not working or the information on the history of Thanksgiving is woefully represented, as as I see ” is a beautiful holiday that encourages us to count our blessings, just as our Pilgrim forefathers did throughout Thanksgiving history” On statement covers ‘history’? How sad. It appears the quiz honors the history of Thanksgiving with one question out of five the rest are simply current knowledge. That is a history quiz? Gerber you need to educate your writers.
