So this time of year always gets crazy. People are annoying, rushing around, stores crowded, more traffic, and in upstate NY cold. (well not today)
Thanksgiving was started as a way to show thanks and gratitude towards family, friends, and god. People showing thanks for their harvest. In the United States Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of the month. Did you know Thanksgiving in the United States was observed on various different dates throughout history. By the mid 20th century, the final Thursday in November had become the customary day of Thanksgiving in most U.S. states. It was not until December 26, 1941, however, that President Franklin D. Roosevelt, after pushing two years earlier to move the date earlier to give the country an economic boost, signed a bill into law with Congree, making Thanksgiving a national holiday and settling it to the fourth (but not final) Thursday in November.
Well as the years have gone by it seems that people have lost the meaning of Thanksgiving. It is funny how each year the Christmas decorations and Christmas music start earlier and earlier.
I just reminded everyone to take the time and to remember what you are thankful this Thanksgiving!
I am thankful for family and friends, my job, the ability to love life, and of course Bowtie!
I am a fat kid at ♥, I LOVE pumpkin pie, scalloped corn, and cranberry sauce!
Does anyone have traditions that they would like to share?
What are your favorite holiday foods or drinks?
This is probably my favorite Holiday TV episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvw-G4J4Y2c This CRACKS me up!
So this year can we all just stop and remember what the holidays are about. Give thanks to those that deserve it, help where y0u can, do good things for others, be patient and kind, and enjoy your time with loved ones. Happy Holidays! ( I am usually a scrooge, I am trying to change my ways this year)
