Today is Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving Day is presently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November and has been an annual tradition in the United States since 1863.
Most Americans celebrate by gathering at home with family or friends for a holiday feast.
It’s the closes they have to a “reunion dinner.”
This American holiday is tied to the “deliverance” of the English settlers by Native Americans after the harsh winter at Plymouth, Massachusetts.
The First Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 to give thanks to God and the Native Americans for helping the pilgrims survive the brutal winter.
Restaurants in Singapore are quick to jump onto the bandwagon, promoting their Thanksgiving meals.
Late last month, Singaporeans celebrated Halloween as well.
I wonder if these people know the reasons behind these so-called “special” days.
