Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day. I know i should have written this yesterday. Well, better late than never, right? Thanksgiving is observed on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in United States. This festival is celebrated every year and is considered as a national holiday. For the americans, they celebrate Thanksgiving as a way of remembering that their ancestors settled in a new world. For the canadians, however, it is for purposes of giving thanks for a successful harvest. In concept, they have the same purpose. This purpose, i believe, is to celebrate and to give thanks for the blessings that they enjoy. Americans celebrate Thanksgiving by sharing with friends and family members a feastful dinner. Of course, when it comes to food, Thanksgiving is always associated with turkey. Well, happy thanksgiving to those who observed this festival..belated!!
