8 Things to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

As the holiday is approaching quite fast, the festive spirit that Thanksgiving brings along includes the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, Macy’s parade and so much more.

Are you waiting for these too??

Everyone does!!

However, there’s a lot more than just turkey or the parade. The holiday is about the first harvest celebration as well as other special aspects that you should be thinking about.

Here’s a list of 8 things that you should be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Family

Who doesn’t want to come home to a family that sticks through the thick & thin times? Don’t you love it when you all sit together and eat food, watch movies, talk about small things? You should be thankful for your partner who’s rock strong and always there for you. Thankful for the kids who bring a smile to your face with the tiny things they do for you.

Beginning of the holiday season

Halloween has recently finished and now you’re all set for the upcoming holidays that certainly bring cheer to your face and raise the happiness. There’s Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas and finally New Year. All these have their respective thrill that starts even before the day comes and lasts quite long in our hearts and minds.

Pay day

Sounds off?? It isn’t because nothing brings a broader smile on your face than when you see that text saying – “your salary has been credited to your account”. Do we even need to say anything else than just saying the above? Paydays bring happiness and you should be thankful for the same.

Gifts

Who doesn’t like gifts? Whether it is your birthday, anniversary or Thanksgiving and Christmas, gifts are always welcomed with open hearts & arms as well as a big smile. No matter what you get in there a toy, showpiece, accessory, shirt, pant, men’s underwear or anything else, a gift is a gift. There’s nothing more exciting about it.

The coming New Year

Aha!! A fresh start. Another year full of resolutions that won’t even last a month, promises to get into the shape where bikini underwear would look appealing to you and so on. But, at least the year is coming and you should be thankful for the same.

Good food

Well, you should be thanking your mothers who cook delicious food for you, but it still is a blessing for which you should be thankful. For all the pizzas, burgers, stuffed turkey, chops and everything that you love o eat – just be thankful that it’s available for you and ask for those who don’t have it.

Pets

Whether you’re a coffee & cat person or tea & dog kinds, having a pet is what keeps you happy. Be thankful for pets in your life because if they weren’t there, you would be have been lonelier and incomplete. After all, they are family and complete our lives.

Online shopping with free shipping

Who doesn’t like online shopping? Well, what hurts more is when you have to pay shipping cost. So, when the duo comes in together, it is all about being thankful for and a win-win situation.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

6 ways to have a meaningful Thanksgiving

While Thanksgiving purports to be a day when family and friends gather to break the bread and celebrate the bounty of the harvest as well as the miracle of life, you get to do a lot of things to indulge in have that satisfying feeling in today’s time.

With a series of blogs on the Thanksgiving 2016, we are back with a new set to give you a heads up for the year 2017. From knowing the day to the best, the blogs that we talked about things that make it special, the list goes on.

This year, we’ve refreshed our list of the ways to celebrate a meaningful Thanksgiving and here are the follows.

Get your family together and donate food

A family that eats together and stays together is a happy & blessed family. What you can do this year rather than eating together at the table, why not come together and feed the hungry with the home cooked food? Wouldn’t that be a satisfying experience of sharing the joy of giving and being thankful? And, most importantly, it will raise the bar of your happiness.

Love without conditions

Spend a day with your grandparents and feel the love that they have to give you. If that’s not what you can do, then visiting an old-age home would be a suitable idea if you really want to spread love and share the same with someone. Say thank you to your near & dear ones to make sure that love comes without conditions as well.

Play quiz with your family and give gifts

Be the host of a family gathering and play a quiz with them. Be the quiz-master and prepare questions for all of them. This would be a great way to give away the gifts and surprises for everyone. You can pick a gift for everyone depending on their age and relationship. From sweatshirts, Ps4, to sexy underwear for men, you can pick anything and everything for the people.

Say grace

What is a Thanksgiving celebration without saying grace? Your lavish serving on the table should be fed on after saying grace together. You would have seen Fast & the Furious series where the family always comes together to say grace before their meal, you too have to do it that way.

Try not be judgmental for a day

Have you tried “not ” doing something for a day?? If you haven’t tried doing the same, try not to be judgmental for a day. Don’t think about the good & the bad, what’s he wearing, why is wearing that and so on. Try this and you’ll feel really happy inside and there’s no better feeling than that?

Take a walk in nature’s lap

Why not witness the nature’s beauty this time? With all the beautiful colors of harvest, you can go collecting different colored leaves or twigs or anything that is worthy to be picked on the Thanksgiving Day.

What makes Thanksgiving Day Special?

What makes Thanksgiving Day Special | Skiviez

We certainly enjoy the holiday season and every bit of it. However, in the midst of all the celebrations and partying, few things are left out or are not accounted for. We might use them or participate in them, but we’re too busy so we don’t consider them as important. These aspects make the holidays a very special feeling and we’re going to lay them out so that you don’t miss out on any of it this Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Parade

This has a lot to do with my childhood memories. Dad and I would sit in front of the television watching the entire parade as the various floats, bands, march, balloons and Santa Claus as the climax. We would be so excited to the creativity on TV and be glad about it. Even today, sometimes we either stay home and watch it on the television or go and watch it live.

The Tradition

The tradition calls for a lot of things out of which we practice some and have forgotten the others. It is more of a chaotic holiday now because the females stay up all night preparing for the buffet hosted by the family the next day and more of it. The tradition calls for a relaxed morning breakfast, watching the parade, start preparing for the glazed stuffed turkey and the other delicacies, greet the guests, sit down to say grace, have supper and share gifts. With these traditions, I love the dinner part, sharing memories together and the gifts exchange. My wife bought me a pair of male underwear, that too a sexy men’s bikini underwear. I hope she gets something spicier this time.

Family

Without the love and presence of the family, no holiday or celebration is complete. It is with their love and care that even the ordinary days are made special. I remember one year my sister was not able to come back home her college (hostel) for the vacation. It was like there was no celebration at home at all and on the other hand, my sister felt lonely because the rest of us were together. So, keeping the family in the center of the celebrations is essential.

Gifts

Like it was mentioned above that I love gifts, Thanksgiving is all about sharing gifts with each other. Being a popular tradition, it is also a time when you have to spend time thinking of what to give the other. With all sorts of options available on the internet, you can also choose what can you buy for your family members, relatives, and friends.

These are the aspects that make the holiday a lot special than it is. Remember them when you involve with your guests and make sure that you be thankful for all you have. You can know more about Thanksgiving here.

In the last blog, we laid down the ideas of how you can celebrate Thanksgiving Day 2016. However, having ample knowledge of the day is what is important before celebrating it. Hence, that’s exactly we’ll be talking about here.

Looking forward to the actual meaning of Thanksgiving Day, this blog would lay out its basic meaning.

Being celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November (falling on 24th this year), it marks the official start of the holiday season of the year. The holiday is celebrated by the young and the old with full enthusiasm and zest in many ways, this day is about being together with your family and friends.

If you look back in the history, you’d find that it all started when the Pilgrims celebrated after their first harvest in the New World, which is America at the present time. If you didn’t know, this being an American-centric holiday, even Canadians celebrate it on a different day.

Turkey is the center of attraction
If you didn’t know, one of the theory states that Queen Elizabeth was having Goose for dinner when the news came that the fleet of Spanish ships sunk while they were coming to attack England. Hence, she ordered for another goose in order to celebrate the defeat. There are other stories too but this is the most prominent one among them.

Hence, if you are celebrating the Thanksgiving Day, make sure you have a cooked (roasted, grilled or fried) Turkey on the table for the family and friends. In addition, other dishes are also important because the only turkey won’t do.

Other food items necessary at the table
Without turkey, your Thanksgiving Day would not be Thanksgiving  but without the other dishes, the celebration would be incomplete. Some of the must-haves on the table are- cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and apple pie with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it all off and an all-time favorite Pumpkin Pie.

Christmas songs are an integral part
As it was mentioned above, Thanksgiving is the official start of the festivities that finishes on Christmas, you’d find families playing Christmas carols and hymns when they sit together to share food with each other.

Sharing is an essential
Once the food is done, you can spend time being grateful for your blessings and all that you have. You exchange gifts with your loved ones and make sure that the sharing is extended outside as well. You can check out ways to share your love with the others, find out how here. Be happy and thankful for everything you have including your family, friends, and other blessings.

5 Ways to give Thanks, this Thanksgiving Day

5 Ways to give Thanks, this Thanksgiving Day | Skiviez

Oprah Winfrey said,
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

It is that time of the year when we finally celebrate Thanksgiving again. Thanksgiving is a day when you give thanks to every beautiful person who’s made some or the other changes in your life for good. Starting from God, you go all the way to the family, friends, acquaintances and everyone else. Without them, you wouldn’t have been the way you are and where you are.

Are you planning to thank them for this year?

There are numerous ways to thank the people in your life as well as God in some or the other way. We have compiled a list of things that you can do to say thank you.

1.Thank you notes: The simplest and the most adorable way of thanking someone is to say thank you in the first place. And, if you want the person to remember that thank you, make sure you say it in a way that it stays. Whether it is a thanking card or a souvenir, gift it one and all who you think you should be thankful for. There are numerous options available online from where you can get the notes customized for different people.

2.Charity: The day is all about celebrating and making others happy. There’s no other way to make someone happy other than bringing a smile on the person’s face. Charity is the way where you can bring joy to people who hardly have ways to be happy about. Donate money, clothes, daily provisions and other things to people who cannot afford it and this will surely be a blessed occasion for you. The clothes you donate need not be brand new, they can be the ones which you don’t wear anymore or even don’t need. Make sure they’re in good health for someone else is going to wear them.

3.Feed the hungry: What can be a better way to have the blessings than feeding the hungry? If you are considerate enough to feel the person’s hunger, you’d be truly a gentleman to feed him/her. Serve them yourself and see their faces glow when their stomach goes full and the satisfaction that you’ll get is beyond any comparison.

4.Plan a dinner for family and friends: Plan a lavish dinner for your family and friends. Invite them to be a part of your celebration and feed them. Talk about the occasion and its significance as well as give return gifts to them all. There are many gifting options depending on whom to give online. For example, gifting a pair of men’s underwear to your partner or a box of candies to your friends is all it takes.

5.Plant a tree: Considering the environment and the depleting resources, this is probably the easiest thing you can do when it comes to Thanksgiving. It would be a way of thanking mother Earth and nature for giving us what we have today and might not be there tomorrow. Ask you, family and friends, to do the same and it will be an invest for the future generations.
