AFTEA, Inc. Thanksgiving and Christmas Get Toge...
Thanksgiving Day traditionally kicks off the 'holiday season' in the United States. The day was set in stone by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 and approved by Congress in 1941. FDR changed it from Abraham Lincoln's designation as the last Thursday in November (because there are sometimes five Thursdays in the month). While Britons think of it as a warm-up for the Yuletide period, many Americans think of it as just as important as Christmas.
In fact, more people in the US celebrate Thanksgiving than they do Christmas. Thanksgiving Day is a secular holiday in a country that officially separates church and state so this probably makes sense. So this Thanksgiving season, giving thanks helps us to recognize, appreciate, and be grateful for the good things in our lives. It's something that's good to do at anytime of the year.
