Thanksgiving: Wherever You Are!

My childhood friend married a US citizen but their family is based in Japan. It just proves well that wherever you are, you can still celebrate Thanksgiving and any other celebrations, right?

Look at these photos and you’ll definitely feel the spirit of Thanksgiving. Thanks Marilyn for the photos.

It was when I worked for Convergys that I learned more about Thanksgiving Day. That it is being celebrated every 4th Thursday of November and it’s well celebrated just like Christmas. For some, it’s more grand. And, did you know that the first Thanksgiving Day lasted for 3 days? Interesting, right?

Baked or roasted turkey is normally the center of attraction in a Thanksgiving dinner table. That’s why some refer this day as “Turkey Day”. Aside from literally giving thanks, most communities run something like a food drive to help and serve food to the less fortunate ones. Which for me is really a blessed thing to do.

Families gather to celebrate and have dinner together. The more, the merrier!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
