Why Thanksgiving is Important
My wife’s favorite time of year is Thanksgiving, wouldn’t it be great if more folks shared this sentiment? Most think it is a “special” day to get their Christmas list together and “shop, shop, shop, shop, shop, shop, shop, shop, shop”, which has replaced the Fa La La La La La La La La! The majority of Americans couldn’t tell you what it’s all about…in the fall of 1621, less than 6 months after their arrival in America, more than half of the original Pilgrims had either died of disease of starvation, so to give thanks to God for his bounty, the first Thanksgiving was celebrated. I think it would behoove the majority of Americans to redirect their feeling towards gratitude this holiday season rather than the long lines at the mall…all of that materialistic STUFF will be there later, your friends and family may not!
