Many of us believe Christmas is one of the most celebrated holidays, right? Actually, one of the most notable occasions is Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is surprisingly a widely celebrated holiday that crosses over many nationalities and religions.
Thanksgiving is the time to feel gratitude for everything that we have. It is not only the celebration, but also the spirit of thanks that makes this holiday so special. If we think about our life, and ourselves we should thank the clouds for giving us rain, the trees because they give us fruit, the earth because it gives us a place to live. Our parents for giving birth to us, our friends, for sharing our thoughts and being with God and us for giving all these.
Giving gifts at Thanksgiving is not as popular as Christmas, gift giving at this time could actually be appreciated more since it is more likely to be unexpected. Since Thanksgiving is traditionally a family celebration, gift giving to friends and business associates could offer a very special meaning of thanks. A card, gift or thank you note has a more personal touch at Thanksgiving than it might at other times of the year.
In America, Thanksgiving is the first holiday break since our summer vacation and, with today’s hectic lifestyles, most holidays are appreciated by all – young and old alike. So if you would like to show your appreciation to loved ones, or impress a business associate, Thanksgiving is the time to send that personalized gift. Since gift giving at Thanksgiving was traditionally celebrated only among families, giving a gift to a friend or associate will catch them totally off guard and it will carry a very strong message of thanks.
The real thanksgiving means to thank each and everyone who has done something good for us. So express your thanks and make others happy. That is the true spirit of Thanksgiving.
