happy thanks giving !

 
Thanksgiving is not just the festival of America but there is more to it than it being called just a “Harvest Festival”. It is said that contentment is the greatest happiness in life so it is always right to thank all those who have been responsible for what we are today. Thanksgiving is the festival of remembering people who sacrificed their lives for our well being.....
Most important part of the Thanksgiving is the family meal in every home. ....the whole family gathers at the meal and start with the saying of grace..... the meal usually consists of roasted turkey, pumkin pie, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet corn, etc.

I have switched to chicken this yr as Turkey didnt come out that good last year and the bird was too big...
so much left over food for waste...its not me....so decided to go for something simple and  easy to make...with all relatives and friends ..some good time and good memories to keep!

There are also communal feeding of the poor and most foods are collected by various organizations from every home several days before the Thanksgiving......for this reason the food primarily consists of canned food. Though Thanksgiving is not really associated with the religious past of Christianity, it is the only non-holy day...

Thanksgiving is also a time for shopping and public parades in the US. Seasonal shopping season usually begins on friday next to Thanksgiving and is usually called the Black Friday...

Prayer!
Thanksgiving Day Grace
Thank thee, Lord
For all my many blessings,
thank thee, Lord.
I have bread,
thank thee, Lord.
for room and board.
thank thee, Lord.
for friends and family.
God takes such good care of me.


AMEN..
happy thanks giving to all!!
