Warm wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family and particularly to those living abroad and in the U.S.
Thanksgiving, currently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November by federal legislation in 1941, has been an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States. Historically, Thanksgiving has traditionally been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is celebrated both with family and in public places with parades such as Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City, ABC Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia, America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade in Plymouth, Massachusetts, McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade in Chicago, and Bayou Classic Thanksgiving Parade in New Orleans. This first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping seasonWikipedia but are in our thoughts.
For me, Thanksgiving is a special day to give thanks and remember those no longer with us or those who live someplace else but are always in our thoughts.
