Giving thanks was, and still is, the primary reason for ceremonies or celebrations across the world. In North America, the Thanksgiving holiday has focused on an expression of gratitude since ancient times when the Native People of North America held festivals to give thanks for successful harvests and in the hope of a good season ahead. In modern times families continue to give thanks for their blessings, good fortunes and other glad tidings.

 

There are so many great festivities synonymous with Thanksgiving; a great big get-together with your family and friends including a turkey feast with all-the trimmings and enjoying delicious desserts with your nearest and dearest whilst gathered around the TV watching a big game or parade. It’s beginning to sound at lot like Christmas, hey? There are a lot of similarities! So, without suggesting that we full on celebrate this Stateside-holiday today, it’s the intention of thanksgiving that is really appealing and is pleasant to think about today.

Reflecting on the meaning of thanksgiving is a big part of the celebration. It’s a time when families and friends, who might be miles apart throughout the year, spend time together and consider how grateful they are to have each other in their lives.

 

The idea of a designated day for considering all of the joy and happiness we experience is surely a positive one and so without the need for another family-sized feast (a lot of us in the UK already have plenty coming up!) it is maybe a day just to spend some time reflecting on all the great things we enjoy (and sometimes take for granted) and for being hopeful and enthusiastic about our futures.
