I really wanted to post a new blog entry yesterday about the Thanksgiving Day in the US. However, I failed to do so because there are many things needed to be done for work and school. So, I decided to write a short post about the event today.
Every one was excited for the great celebration. Even non-Americans are celebrating it on their own simple ways. This only proves that USA has a great influence in different countries all over the world. In fact, one of the trending topics worldwide on Twitter is "Happy Thanksgiving Day." Many people were tweeting about the things they are thankful of. But reading all those messages made me think whether these people fully understood what Thanksgiving mean.
Thanksgiving is one of the most-awaited holidays in the US. It is an annual celebration that happens every fourth Thursday of November. It has become a tradition for the US citizens after Abraham Lincoln proclaimed November 26, 1863 (Thursday) as a national day of thanksgiving. It started during the Civil War. This holiday has become one of the most popular holidays in the country just like Christmas and New Year.
During this important day, Turkey is always part of the grand celebration in every family lunch or dinner.
It's never too late for me to great, "Happy Thanksgiving to all my American Friends!"
