Pin It

Here it is! The most wonderful time of the year. As we prepare for Christmas and for waving another year goodbye, we have a special day to reflect on everything and express gratitude for all we have in our lives: Thanksgiving Day, a date considered as the official start of the holiday season in the US.
It is the perfect opportunity to get together with loved ones and enjoy a nice meal. The holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, and this year we get to celebrate it on November 22.
A little bit of history
The tradition as we know it started with Pilgrims feasting to celebrate their first harvest in “the New World” (America). In 1789, the Congress requested a proclamation by George Washington to celebrate Thanksgiving as a holiday. Years later, in 1863 and during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November. The objective was to promote unity.
Thereafter, the holiday was annually proclaimed by every president and the date would change sometimes until Roosevelt issued a proclamation in 1942, designating that Thanksgiving Day should be celebrated the fourth Thursday in November, which isn’t always the last one of the month.
Celebrating Thanksgiving Day
As its name states, Thanksgiving is all about gratitude, a nice feeling that is said to magnify our experience of the good things in life, enabling us to enjoy them more thoroughly.
This day is associated with multiple images and traditions including turkey for the meal, apple pie, Macy’s Parade or even football games but the real joy behind these symbols is unity. Families see their members traveling from anywhere to get to celebrate together. In fact, Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest weekends for air travel in the United States. No less than 40 million people travel each year to share dinner with their beloved ones. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics estimated that the average traveler for the holiday cover 214 miles.
Thanksgiving is one of the most important in the calendar and perhaps the most cherished along Christmas. Whether you decide to spend some time watching the parade and singing along to the music or watching a nice match or outside having a nice time with nature, we want to wish you a day full of joy and a sense of gratitude.
