There are many countries that observe ‘Thanksgiving’ as a national holiday but on distinct dates. United States, Brazil, and Canada celebrate the day with much zeal and enthusiasm. Saint Lucia, Liberia, and Grenada, further extend the list of the nations. Various land territories as Norfolk Islands, Leiden, and also the inhabited parts of the UK observe the festival.Wishing everyone a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY 2020.
The inception of a happy Thanksgiving festival happened as the day to offer thankfulness for the gift of the harvest followed by the New Year.
Many nations celebrate ‘Thanksgiving’ but in different forms. For example, Japan and Germany observe an entirely different celebration but with the same name. Canada celebrates the day in mid-October. In the USA, and usually the other parts of the world, is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.
Despite the fact that Thanksgiving is celebrated with its cultural and religious importance, it is observed as a secular holiday.
Thanksgiving in USA
The United States celebrates Thanksgiving as one of its federal holidays. Also, known as American Thanksgiving, the occasion is majorly about the happy Thanksgiving turkey dinner. People consider the day as the mark of the beginning of the fall-winter vacation period. The period proceeds with Christmas and later, New Year.
Thanksgiving is not about a day. It is a celebration of one’s bond with another. The activities as buying gifts and preparing dinner for the loved ones increase the merriment around. For some people, the celebration is incomplete until they go out shopping on Black Friday. The Internet is loaded with such ‘Thanksgiving memes.’
As per the beliefs of USA culture, the Pilgrims observed the ‘First Thanksgiving’ in October 1621 after their first harvest in the New World.

The message – HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY 2020
The festival brings a gentle and naïve message to us. The celebrations of ‘Thanksgiving’ are as merry and simple that a person from any culture, tradition, heritage, or religion can embrace it. It is secular and universal in its appeal.
It unites the people in the color of festivity and love around rather than the sections of ethnicity, religion, and race.
The festivity brings togetherness and warmth to every home in America. It brings the jolly season to America when every family gets with each other to eat dinner, get along, party, and go shopping. It makes the families and the communities grow stronger.
People get together at one dinner table and forget about their ongoing problems. This gives a message to rather look up at life for what you have than regretting what you do not.
It proves a break from the hectic routine and complicated events. It is a gush of fresh air for being so simple in form yet very relaxing.
With modern times the Thanksgiving songs and prayers are accompanied with Thanksgiving memes. These memes on the Internet depict the cute things done in the community on the day. They are worth giving a check on.
