What makes Thanksgiving Day Special?

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 | 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.
