Thanksgiving Quotes to Inspire Thankfulness

Thanksgiving Quotes to Inspire Thankfulness

posted: 2020-11-09 17:30:00 +0800

Thanksgiving is a truly special time. It is a holiday generally celebrated in Canada and the USA. In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October while in the US it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. The Canadian tradition can be traced back to mid-1500 to 1700, while the American tradition originated around the 1600s, with both countries’ specific date of origin uncertain. The differences in date between the two countries are likely due to Canada’s harvest season ending earlier due to its colder winter weather.

The Thanksgiving tradition began as a way to commemorate last year’s harvest and to be thankful for its bounty and is rooted in Protestant Christianity, though today, like Christmas, it is a holiday that is celebrated by people of all faiths and cultures. Today, people take the opportunity to spend time with their family, make elaborate meals of turkey and pie, and take a moment to be thankful.
