Thanksgiving: A Time To Celebrate Family

Though there is some debate, the “First USA Thanksgiving” is commonly traced to the Plymouth feast in 1621. The feast celebrated a good harvest. Different states observed Thanksgiving on different dates until 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed it to be the last Thursday in November. Because of the Civil War and political unrest, a national Thanksgiving date was not recognized until the 1870’s. This year, Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 26.

What do you celebrate on Thanksgiving? Is it the people, the food, or both? Thanksgiving is often a day that brings families together. Relatives you don’t get to see too often may be sitting around your table. Families enjoy conversation, the company, and catching up on each other’s lives. The holiday season seems to provide a good reason for everyone to get together.

A traditional feast might be served: Turkey, ham, stuffing, cranberries, squash, potatoes, and pie. With so many delicious things to eat, it’s not hard to overindulge and pack on a few extra pounds. After the meal, some of us may watch football, take a nap, or maybe both.

What is your favorite thing about Thanksgiving? What traditions do you and your families share? What is your favorite thing to eat? Post below and let us know. We’d love hearing more about your traditions.

At CashCrate, families are very important to us. We’ve always been a very family focused company. From our families to yours, we wish all of you the happiest of Thanksgivings.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    I will be home alone this year, as everyone that I normally celebrate with will be out of town.

    We always would go to my parents home for Thanksgiving dinner. Mom would always give all of us a Christmas ornament wrapped beautifully on our plates.. It was always decorated so beautiful. This is a wonderful memory that I keep a tradition close to my heart with my own children.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. My favorite part of the holiday is how people come together (families, whether they are blood related or not) and give thanks for each other. Gratitude is the most important part of this day and should be a regular concept in all of our lives. Many blessings to all of you and your families! :)
