Thanksgiving Day is observed in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November.
Historically, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.
On this day, let’s pause a moment from our busyness and reflect on the good that has happened for the past year. If you think everything around you is gloom, think again. For you to be alive and reading this post is in itself a reason to be thankful.
